Our Focus areas

Economic Resilience

We’re playing a vital role in creating a more resilient European economy by continuing to invest in our networks and infrastructure. Access to ultrafast, reliable broadband empowers businesses to accelerate their digital transformation as well as enabling individuals to stay connected to each other.
We’re supporting the Commission in its goal of making Europe the most connected continent in the world by 2030 by investing and upgrading our 5G and fibre networks, with nearly 95% of our footprint now able to access gigabit broadband.

Digital transition

We’re investing in expanding our network and creating innovative products and services to ensure consumers and businesses embrace the opportunities created by digital technologies.

This transition will only happen if our communities do not have the necessary digital skills or trust in digital services. We therefore have a range of initiatives to provide connectivity, services and digital skills to people who need them, as well as safeguarding our children online and protecting customer data.

Green transition

Superfast broadband and digital technology will play a vital role in the path towards Net Zero, enabling businesses to become more sustainable and more people to work from home, commute less and access healthcare online, as well as powering the sustainable smart cities of the future.

As we spearhead this digital transformation, it is our responsibility to ensure that as our business grows, our impact on the planet doesn’t. We’re committed to enhancing sustainability and energy efficiency in our business, becoming founding members of the European Green and Digital Coalition and announcing Net Zero targets by 2030.

Policy reports

Our annual policy reports explore the opportunities and advancements that our technology and innovation can enable and the benefit that that has for our society. Working with respected economist such as Oxera, EY and AT Kearney, we use methods such as polling, projections and social sciences to deliver key insights into the power of our networks and how we can harness that power to create a better future.
