Industry Insights on the Future of Connectivity Ecosystems

📣Next week during #EAS24 our MD, @IrinaVarlan , will moderate a @ESAEeu panel designed to help associations surmount the unique challenges they face incorporating AI into #digital transformations.

💡 Change can be difficult, but we can help make it easier. Join us!

#Telecoms companies aren’t the same ones that brought us the first mobile phones and broadband cable television. They are now trendier – evolving to meet society’s needs. Industry welcomes a new generation of policies that keep telcos competitive throughout their evolution.

EU policies must keep pace with an increasingly international #Digital ecosystem. Providers must have the flexibility to reinvent their business models as they scale up and strengthen collaboration with other investors, vendors, and #technology companies to remain competitive.

OUR MANDATE

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.
