On 18 October in Brussels BEREC held its 5th Stakeholder forum where stakeholders from telecoms and digital environments gathered to exchange views on topics which appear crucial for the future of these environments, in particular in a context of intense legislative debate on the regulatory framework review.The forum provided the opportunity in particular to discuss on the best regulatory approaches to promote new models of investment and competition, at a time when investments in very-high capacity network are crucial for the emergence of the Gigabit society.

This 5th Stakeholder forum also aimed at considering, in another roundtable, the way regulators should balance setting consumer safeguards with the need to foster innovation, when the convergence of content and traditional electronic communication services and the emergence of new players in this market offer new opportunities to consumers but might also create new regulatory challenges.
