Euro telcos call for Big Tech cash

The CEOs of 16 European telcos have issued statement calling for the largest traffic generators to make a fair contribution to the “sizeable” costs they currently impose on European networks.

Noting the role of connectivity in addressing current EU challenges, they say they are writing with a sense of urgency, as the European Commission looks at the priorities for the last, and important, part of its five-year mandate. “In an age of socio-economic and geopolitical challenges, convergent and timely collaboration between public and private actors is essential, especially on crucial digital matters: alone, no company, NGO or institution can offer effective solutions to today’s complex problems,” they state.
