EU Council ready to talk with Parliament on new telecom code

Thursday 12 October 2017 | 15:55 CET | News
The European Council has granted the Estonian presidency a general mandate to begin negotiations with the European Parliament on the proposed Electronic Communications Code. The mandate widens the scope of electronic communications services to take account of the growing importance of OTT services including VoIP, messaging apps and email. It comes after the European Parliament's Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) approved an updated version of the Code including a price cap on long-distance EU calls.
