Euractiv event: The importance of connectivity during and after the COVID-19 crisis

Daniel Pataki, GSMA VP for Policy and Regulation & Head of Europe, Russia and CIS, spoke at the Euractiv event on the EU’s digital future and the value of connectivity. Daniel noted that while COVID-19 demonstrated that connectivity is essential, Europe still lags behind in 5G adoption and spectrum access. He stressed that the lag is due to market fragmentation and regulation, specifically spectrum policies and deployment rules. Daniel concluded that the regulatory status quo will not allow Europe to reach the targets of the Digital Decade.
