Comment Neelie
[...] But we are not yet there. I would therefore urge all those involved to reach a political agreement in the coming days. We cannot afford to postpone critical milestones for European mobile services just because of delayed adoption of the RSPP. I remain optimistic: because we have already an agreement in principle on many aspects, including on the central element of establishing an inventory and review of spectrum use. However, we still need to make some steps forward on a few important issues to achieve the ambitious spectrum policy crucial for Europe's competitiveness. In particular, we must be able to anticipate and meet growing demand. We must allow a quick and easy leap ahead to 4G, offering better services to our citizens and business. Our systems must work in harmony in Europe and with our international partners. And we need a strong European voice in the international arena.
