Vice President Neelie Kroes has responded to the letter sent by INTUG on 25 February 2014 regarding Apple's restrictive practices on 4G networks (read INTUG letter here).

In her response, VP Kroes acknowledges how important wide availability of state-of-the art mobile services (including speeds offered by 4G networks) for consumers and businesses is to the development of digital services in Europe. She highlights how this issue fits in the objectives of the Connected Continent package.

Citing the passing of recent legislation regarding this issue in Belgium, she assures INTUG that the Commission will continue to monitor the situation in the different Member States.
