  • Will the market and technology deliver or does Europe need policy and/or financial stimulus to achieve world-class broadband services?
  • Which business and regulatory models have proved successful in stimulating fibre investment and competition in ultra-broadband? Does Europe need to attract money from outside the sector to cover the cost of fibre investments?
  • Does the price of copper influence investment in next generation infrastructure? How should wholesale charges be set to foster investment, competition and protect consumers?
  • Should operators be free to explore new payment models across the value chain? Will this enhance or weaken the open Internet and can it be reconciled with the principle of “net neutrality”?
  • As content becomes an increasingly important part of the telecoms proposition, do regulators need to change their approach to market analysis and remedies? Should access to content be regulated?
  • Do Europe’s “state aid” rules for broadband need to change to meet the EU’s coverage and competition objectives?
  • What is the cost of “non-Europe”? What can Europe do to deliver a more unified regulatory system to support European and global business?
  • What lessons can the EU learn from existing national online copyright enforcement schemes?
  • What implications will the new radio spectrum policy programme have on wireless deployment? What lessons can we learn from national experiences of allocating the digital dividend?
  • Could a structural solution solve the roaming problem or will retail regulation be needed for the long term?
  • How will technological developments such as smart TV and cloud computing influence the regulatory landscape?
