– The signing of a regulation liberating the market for broadband internet in 76 communes is an important step towards increasing investments in the construction of broadband network in our country – comments Arkadiusz Pączka, Director of the Legislation Monitoring Centre of Employers of Poland.
Increased investments in fiber-optic networks are a necessary component of realizing the guidelines of the EU Digital Agenda, which is aimed at taking advantage of the IT revolution for the benefit of socioeconomic development. This regulation may bring many benefits for the economy: the likely drop in prices should increase the demand for internet services, as well as services provided indirectly through the internet. This, in turn, will cause growth in entrepreneurship and create new jobs.
We hope that the deregulation procedure will be successively extended to other areas where market competition is involved and that the Internet market will be liberated all over the country. The stance adopted by the Office of Electronic Communications should serve as an inspiration for other regulatory institutions.
