Commission proposes major step forward for telecoms single market

Commissioner Kroes at the press conference

The European Commission has adopted its most ambitious plan in 26 years of telecoms market reform.

Launched by Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso in his 2013 State of the Union speech, the “Connected Continent” legislative package, when adopted, will reduce consumer charges, simplify red tape faced by companies, and bring a range of new rights for both users and service providers, so that Europe can once again be a global digital leader.
