The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the European electronic communications markets. As lockdown measures were introduced across the European Union as of spring 2020, the demand for electronic communications services and electronic communications networks spiked significantly. The crisis has clearly demonstrated that connectivity is essential and a “must-have” for all sectors of society.

This version of the Report is a work-in-progress document. It can significantly change after the public consultation and as we anticipate that the pandemic will be with us in the coming months, this may also have a considerable impact on shaping the content of the report.
