Gigabit Infrastructure Act: A Global Leadership Opportunity for the EU

The recent package of EU connectivity initiatives, notably the Gigabit Infrastructure Act, can give European connectivity policy frameworks the makeover that they need and usher in the quality of services that people deserve.  The EU aspires to become a global leader in the digital space. However, the Commission referenced an investment gap of over 174 billion euros during the June EU Digital Assembly.

This virtual gathering was an opportunity to explore ways to surmount barriers to a successful European digital transition.


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 IoT.

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 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.

Our Priorities


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.


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.
