We bring together private investors in gigabit communications networks
We stimulate investment and innovation in a digital, green and resilient Europe
We support policies which allow for sustainable investment in gigabit infrastructure
We support a strong and harmonised European Digital Single Market, with a clear focus on enabling regulatory and market conditions that allow for sustainable investment and innovation in Gigabit infrastructure and the Internet of Things.
GIGAEurope aims to highlight the importance of EU policies, supporting sustainable investment and competition. We believe that European policies should be based on long-term objectives, with regulatory intervention strictly limited to situations where the market fails to provide efficient outcomes.
Working with vertical players and policy makers, we aim to reduce market fragmentation and establish a level playing field across the whole digital ecosystem.
TRUST IN CONNECTIVITY
Trust is key for Europeans to participate in a fast-changing digital world and embrace new technologies. Gigabit network providers need to convey this trust by providing secure & reliable access to the digital world.
No one can be left behind. All Europeans need to have access to next generation digital services enabled by gigabit networks. That is why we need investments in upgrading and rolling-out gigabit networks.
DIGITAL AND GREEN TRANSFORMATION
Gigabit connectivity accelerates the digital and green transformation of economies and society. Gigabit networks enable new advanced digital services in fields like e-health, e-mobility and smart cities.
Gigabit access is key to the digital & green transition and to make Europe carbon neutral by 2050. Innovations with an energy efficiency focus make gigabit networks consume less energy.

Join the debate on the role of connectivity to close the digital divides. What investments are needed to roll-out gigabit networks and 5G to reach every European? How to overcome the digital differences that persist between countries and regions? How to reach coherence between Member States’ Strategic Roadmaps to reach the 2030 Digital Decade targets?
