Portability regulation – Letter sent to competent national authorities

The portability regulation became applicable in all EU Member States on 1 April 2018. This administrative letter was sent by Roberto Viola, Director General of DG CONNECT, to the competent national authorities and states the position of the services of the Commission on the application of the Portability Regulation.

The objective of the portability regulation is to broaden access to online content services for travellers in the EU. Europeans will be able to fully use their online subscriptions to films, sports events, eBooks, video games and music services when travelling within the EU.
