Postitive agreement on Telecoms package2009/11/05
Last night, the European Parliament and the Council reached an agreement on the Telecoms package. The agreement means that internet users cannot be cut of from the internet without a fair and impartial procedure.
The Telecoms package has been much discussed and debated, and I am glad that the Parliament and the Council managed to reach an agreement in a positive and constructive atmosphere yesterday. The Telecoms Package will lead to more and better consumer services as well as to better prices, protection against spam, increased access to the internet for disabled people and better premises for investments in new networks.
