A truly open and innovative network is essential for a fully functioning and productive economy. The Internet is a central tool in people’s lives, whether for recreational, educational or work related activities.

The intrinsic benefits drawn from the Internet’s open nature is the ability for anyone to develop new and innovative devices and services that connect to it. This style of innovation has created entirely new industries and has fostered competitive markets in Internet applications and equipment. Being an entrepreneur in the Digital Age is more exciting than in almost any time in history!

Also important are the frameworks which govern how the Internet operates and ensure it’s continued openness. In addition it is the role of policy makers to balance the needs of Users while protecting them and ensuring competitiveness.

These principles and the expert opinions from industry are collated in DIGITALEUROPE’s response to the European Commission’s Public Consultation on the Open Internet and Net Neutrality.
