“The wise man looks for solutions not excuses”: that could be the underlying theme of the 4th BEREC Stakeholder Forum, held on 17 October 2016, in Brussels, at which INTUG participated.
Sebastien Soriano, BEREC Chair 2017, outlined some current "excuses": Network Neutrality rules, too-tough OTT is unfair, the merger policy is bad… Then he explained the challenges that would be covered in the roundtables of the day:
- The Connectivity Challenge: everywhere, on every terminal on every service
- A Fast-changing digital environment: New services, new challenges, new opportunities for innovation?
- Are connectivity and Network Neutrality stifling innovation?
Industry experts, users and government officials all weighed in on the topics. Nick White, Executive Vice President of INTUG, participated in the meeting and has drafted a summary report. You can also download the transcript of the meeting here.
