Telecoms : Orange welcomes the European Commission’s vision

Orange welcomes the European Commission’s vision at the heart of the new code on European Electronic Communication.

Proposals supporting and stimulating investments in networks are essential and the deregulation of fibre networks open to co-investment can be a real game-changer that improves fibre deployment for consumers.
Bringing more consistency to spectrum allocation criteria, especially to meet the 5G challenges, is also a positive step forward.

This Code is the opportunity to set up a more balanced regulation of services between various providers of digital services, in particular between online-only providers (OTTs) and telecoms operators.
We will analyse the proposal in greater detail in the coming days and look forward to working with the European institutions on the Code’s finalisation.
