Based on the main connectivity indicators of the report, such as network coverage, broadband take-up, and prices, the Telecom chapters report on the progress made by Member States towards a gigabit society, including the transition to 5G networks, and on main market and regulatory developments, including spectrum assignment and regulated access. Far from being exhaustive, they cover most areas of the market and end-user interest, i.e. consumer protection, net neutrality, roaming, emergency communications, and universal service. 

The Telecom chapters combine the quantitative evidence from the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) with country-specific regulatory developments. They track the development of the telecoms markets of each Member State and provide an important feedback loop.
