The Centre for Democracy and Technology welcomes the opportunity to provide input to the European Commission’s exploratory consultation on “The future of the electronic communications sector and its infrastructure”.
In this submission we provide input to the consultation to specifically address aspects of Questions 10, 54, 58 and 60 only. Additionally we submit our report published earlier in 2023 on Network Slicing.
CDT does not accept the premise that internet operators’ network costs are insufficiently accounted for under the current internet interconnectivity architecture. Furthermore CDT opposes any policy interventions that would restrict the ability for the Internet to evolve, reduce the open nature of the Internet, and fragment core Internet architecture across jurisdiction.
