ETNO presents new study on effects of the
EU Data Act on the telecom sector

 

As European legislators make progress on the landmark EU Data Act, a new study commissioned by ETNO and authored by LE Europe brings a fresh perspective on the impact of the draft regulation on European telecom operators and their business models.

The study mentions European Commission figures underlining that the Data Act can unlock a series of major socio-economic benefits by 2028, including 2.2 million new jobs and a 1.98% GPD boost in EU-27. This is checked against opportunities, risks and the overall impact of the Data Act on telecoms in contexts such as business-to-consumers, business-to-business, business-to-government data sharing arrangements, as well as cloud and edge computing ecosystems.

Ms. Abasolo also mentioned the key role of telcos in boosting digital transition in Europe, highlighting their key role beyond connectivity, providing digital platforms to strengthen the industry. She called for strategic collaboration between industry and regulators, and policies fostering innovation.
