The European Commission Publishes a New Master Plan for Europe’s Digital Infrastructure

March 2024
Region: Europe

The European Commission’s white paper “How To Master Europe’s Digital Infrastructure Needs?” is different from any previous Commission’s proposal in this sector. It is a holistic overview of the opportunities and challenges facing the EU communications industry at the crossroads of a complex converged ecosystem. The Commission invites comments on its proposals through an open consultation until June 30, 2024.

This article provides a summary of the white paper, the first impressions that it solicited, and the reasons why now is the time for all stakeholders – whether you are an operator or an investor – to start working on a response and help shape Europe’s policy for its future digital infrastructure.
