EC launches public consultations

14 September 2015 |


The European Commission has launched two public consultations as part of its Digital Single Market strategy.

The two consultations, one on European broadband needs and the other a review of existing telecoms framework, is open to users, organisations, public bodies and businesses across all sectors.

The two consultations are open until December 7 2015 and the results will be used to identify challenges in telecoms and broadband.

"We are asking you about your needs and your expectations regarding your internet access in the European Union. We are also gathering views on the current telecoms rules and how they should evolve to support the Digital Single Market. Take this opportunity to have your say on Europe's digital future," said Andrus Ansip, VP for the Digital Single Market.

The EC has set an ambitious target of 2020 for its Digital Single Market proposal, with roaming charges in the region set to end by June 2017.
