Brussels 3rd October 2011, The Square, As fully recognised by the EU 2020 Strategy and the Digital Agenda, the Internet is increasingly changing our daily lives in a positive way and used as a key enabler for industry sectors and contributor to societal challenges such as climate change and an ageing population. High performance networks providing fast access to innovative, quality services and products are essential for the success of the Digital Agenda for Europe. The exponential growth in data traffic over fixed and mobile broadband networks, driven mainly by over-the-top (OTT) applications such as video, requires huge investment in order to deploy additional network capacity. A new equilibrium will be essential to ensure that players generating large amounts of data traffic also contribute to the investment challenge ahead. Without clear economic and investment incentives, network congestion will increasingly affect innovation and growth. At this crucial time, ETNO and the Financial Times are proud to present a Summit to foster dialogue between all actors of the Internet eco-system to debate how to allow innovative services to be launched, how the current commercial model may need to evolve and how new revenues can be generated to justify infrastructure investments. It will also look at the role policy makers can take in supporting these initiatives to achieve a viable, sustainable Internet for the benefit of all. Decisions taken now will affect the way the Internet is developed and used and we are proud to convene a distinguished speaker line up to discuss the way forward. The Summit will feature a keynote presentation from European Commissioner Neelie Kroes and two high-level CEO panel debates. Proceedings will be chaired by the Financial Times. Agenda
