The FT and ETNO  hosted One Single Telecom Market for Europe?, a summit featuring policy makers, industry leaders, start-ups, innovators and regulators, in order to debate the progress of the European Commission’s plans and its negotiations with the sector, with a focus on what needs to happen to restore Europe’s competitiveness on the global stage.
