Achieving the Digital Compass Targets
A conversation with telecom stakeholders

The European Commission has published the Digital Compass Targets, and the work to achieving them is speeding up. We take the opportunity to look at the latest facts and figures on 5G, FTTH and services, the key regulatory challenges ahead but also ask panelists: Is Europe on track to achieve the Digital Compass Targets? How can regulation help achieve the Digital Compass Targets?

This hybrid event takes place on 22 October 2021, from 9h30 – 12h00 am CEST in Brussels (Town Hall Europe, Square de Meeûs 5-6*) and online. Throughout the event, we invite all participants to join an open discussion with the panelists.

@ETNOAssociation

The EU is facing an investment gap for digital infrastructure which alters the ability to deploy #5G and #fibre. This is why we need a clear framework to access long-term and sustainable funds through the EU #taxonomy. Read our position paper here: bit.ly/3ilAnsE Link to tweet

@vestager

It was great discussing with you all! The #TTC really holds the potential for strong deliveries. So encouraged by our meeting.

#Trust is key to dispelling #5G #misinformation, and the #5GUsersGuide references independent scientific studies, international public health organisations, as well as government and public authorities. It is now available in 4 languages: bit.ly/3BiQtKO @GSMAEurope Link to tweet

@DIGITALEU

The Path to the #DigitalDecade will establish a governance framework to achieve the EU’s digital transformation by 2030. Our digital compass points to the first goal: secure and sustainable digital infrastructures. Follow our guiding compass: europa.eu/!RUnHuy
