Comment Neelie
[...] Human capital is absolutely essential to a competitive continent. But it is not the only thing we need: we need physical capital too. The fast broadband on which so much innovation and so many tools depend. From connected cars to connected TVs; from videoconferencing to virtual universities. They all need broadband networks, fixed and mobile, that are fast, reliable, and pervasive. And at the moment Europe doesn't have them; not like we need. That is why I am determined to bring down barriers for telecommunications in our single market. So every European can enjoy the benefits of a connected continent: innovative tools over fast networks; fairer prices with fewer borders; roaming charges that disappear as the borders do; an Internet that is open and secure. That's what all our workers and all our innovators need and deserve.
