European Competitive Telecommunications Association

Brussels, 6 February 2024, ecta, the european competitive telecommunications association appreciates the efforts of the European Commission, Parliament, and Council in achieving a political agreement on the Gigabit Infrastructure Act, which could have been a major step forward in achieving connectivity targets. Unfortunately, ecta is concerned that the outcome does not sufficiently reflect the ambitions to which the telecom industry is committed within the EU and arrives too late.

ecta remains committed to constructively contribute to any future legislative initiative preserving the European model, anchored in a pro-competitive EU legal framework for electronic communications. An inclusive electronic communications sector, embracing a multitude of participants, both large and small, and nurturing a diverse array of products and services, is essential to empower the entire European economy and unleash its innovative potential in the digital realm. This diversity serves as a crucial element, ensuring the adaptive fulfilment of the ever-evolving needs of businesses and public administrations.

ecta members are united in their belief that competition is the best driver of efficient investments and the greatest enabler of innovation, choice and benefits for citizens and businesses, as well as for the European economy overall. This is the key message that ecta and its members continuously promote.
