DG Connect brought together interested parties and Vice President Neelie Kroes at an open discussion on a telecoms single market on June 17. The event allowed many different voices to be heard, including residential markets, ECTA (representing challenging operators), ETNO (representing incumbents like Belgacom, etc.), the GSM Association and more.
Several speakers pleaded for a good single business market, highlighting the economic potential of removing barriers for companies. This was a hopeful sign, as under such a system, ICT could be a bigger enabler than it is today.
BELTUG hopes that the new regulations being prepared right now will consider the business market as a separate sector from the consumer market.
BELTUG has posted a Replay of the meeting for members; you can find the remarks of BELTUG/INTUG at minute 114.
