Connectivity & infrastructure

DIGITALEUROPE aims to contribute to the creation of the right framework for Europe’s evolution to a gigabit society, from very high-capacity networks to 5G.

Connectivity is fast becoming the essential part of the modern economy. 5G, for instance, is a turning-point technology that cloud deliver socio-economic benefits worth more than €110 billion every year and create 2.3 million jobs.

  • Investment in gigabit networks, ensuring the best connectivity is available anywhere in Europe
