The European Commission (EC), executive body of the European Union (EU),on 11 September 2013 adopted a plan for telecom market reform called Connected Continent which among other measures would include reduction in consumer charges. The EC paved the way for its most ambitious plan in 26 years, aiming to make Europe a global digital leader again, reports a news agency.
Launched by the EC President Jose Manuel Barroso in his 2013 State of the Union speech, the Connected Continent legislative package will reduce consumer charges, simplify red tape faced by companies, and bring a range of new rights for both users and service providers.

Moreover, substantial progress towards a European single market for telecoms is essential for Europe's strategic interests and economic progress, for the telecoms sector itself and for citizens who are frustrated that they do not have full and fair access to internet and mobile services.

The new legislation promised a great future for the mobile and internet market in Europe. The telecom sector makes up nine percent of Europe's digital economy, as all sectors increasingly depend on connectivity to be globally competitive and deliver services.
