Focus on

30 years of telcos in Brussels
 

1992 was a crucial year for our digital future. It is when the first-ever hand-size mobile phone was launched and dial-up internet commercialized. Also, 1992 was the year ETNO, Europe’s leading telecom association, was founded.

On September 26, join us for an exclusive reception in Brussels, from 6 PM onwards at Mont des Arts 28. More details are to be announced very soon, but you can already apply to attend it through the following
form.

Circularity Stand: by coming to our reception, you can also do good. Bring your old mobile devices and help us recycle them at the Circularity Stand (curated by Proximus).

.@ITU's Global Connectivity Report is a truly good read on #connectivity and #SDGs. #coverage is still an issue in some geographies, but striking how #usage gap seems to be the top contributor to #digitaldivide. We need to think devices, skills, services.. https://t.co/Y3pkSF0sJA
