Thanks to everyone who attended!
The movement towards a connected world will drive more traffic over both fixed and mobile networks - most of this traffic will be video content, in ever-increasing quality. No single technology can sustainably meet this demand - and trying to do so would have severe technical and economic consequences. Gathering some 150 key policymakers, thought leaders and senior industry representatives, and taking place on the occassion of European Satellite Day 2014 and the 6th European Innovation Summit, this event flagged the issues the new European Commission needs to address to ensure that users all over Europe can access these services, affordably and no matter where they live.
