Geoblocking is EC's new roaming

Friday 29 January 2016 | 16:13 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
One of the flagship policies of the current  European Commission is the Digital Single Market (DSM). In the online world, national borders and other barriers are still holding back a single internal market in the EU. As the importance of online services continues to grow, these barriers are becoming a greater problem, according to Andrus Ansip, vice president of the European Commission, in an interview with Telecompaper. The issue of geo-blocking may soon face the same fate as roaming in the EU.
