GIGAEurope Response to Commission White Paper, “How to master Europe’s digital infrastructure needs?”

The European Commission’s endeavour to modernise the regulatory framework for connectivity across the EU is a significant step in shaping the continent’s digital future.

The White Paper “How to master Europe’s digital infrastructure needs?” illustrates the structural challenges and most pressing issues that impact the competitiveness and productive evolution of the European connectivity sector.

As we evaluate the digital landscape, addressing the complexities arising from technological advancements, industry fragmentation, and macro-investment challenges is imperative.

This Response outlines GIGAEurope’s insights on key issues and offers recommendations to pave the way for a robust and forward-looking connectivity policy framework.

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.
