What does EU4Digital do in the area of telecommunications?
In telecommunications, EU4Digital facilitates access to secure and high-speed connectivity at affordable prices for citizens and businesses in the Eastern partner countries. To achieve these goals, the EU4Digital Telecom Rules thematic area supports three main goals:
- Reducing roaming prices – facilitating efforts to sign and implement roaming agreements among the Eastern partner countries and, where appropriate, with the EU. This would help to reduce prices that citizens pay for roaming mobile services (SMS, calls and internet) when travelling to other Eastern partner countries and, where relevant, to the EU.
- Developing 5G connectivity – facilitating the development of secure 5G connectivity based on the EU toolbox for 5G security, as well as 5G private networks based on EU best practices.
- Accessing competitive broadband internet – promoting and monitoring affordable access to high-speed broadband internet services in line with a coordinated EU approach and best practices. Also, supporting local National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) in performing broadband market analysis to ensure that markets offer competitive broadband internet services to all citizens and businesses at affordable prices.
