Broadband Europe – fast or slow lane?

As the European Commission considers new rules aimed at enhancing the broadband investment environment, the European Competitive Telecommunications Association’s annual conference will explore how different regulatory approaches and business models have shaped the European telecommunications market, and what steps are needed to deliver advanced communications infrastructure and competitive services across the single market to consumers and businesses. In a series of keynote speeches, workshops and panels, high-level policy makers and industry leaders will debate key policy questions.
