 Hanging up on the old phones
Digitization has rocked the world of EU telecommunications. Consumers can feel the difference — and a new policy approach might be on the horizon.

 

As the new European Commission prepares to settle in, the world of human communications has been permanently changed by technology. European Commissioners, in their mission letters and parliamentary hearings, appear determined to ensure EU policies catch up with such changes.
Commissioners-designate Margrethe Vestager, Sylvie Goulard, Didier Reynders and Mariya Gabriel —  among others — are on a mission to assert European values, empower digital citizens and make Europe stronger in the global digital economy. In this context, I would like to share some of key highlights from the study Delivering Consumer Value in Digital Times, prepared by Assembly Research for ETNO and presented this week in Brussels.
Read the piece signed by Lise Fuhr, ETNO Director General here.

The findings of the report are available at this link.
