EU accelerates proposals for a single telecoms market

The EU digital commissioner, Neelie Kroes, has indicated that the EU plans to accelerate its proposals for a single market for European telecoms.

Kroes aims to agree the final proposal before the 2014 European Parliamentary elections and to create a ‘fully functioning digital single market’ by as early as 2015.
