Upcoming CISPE event on the impact of internet traffic fees on the cloud sector and its customers

Jun 16, 2023 | News

On 22 June, CISPE will hold an event the proposal by ISPs to introduce an internet traffic fee on large content providers for financing investment in network infrastructure.

The event will provide an opportunity to explore how the much discussed “sending-party-network-pays” model could specifically impact European cloud services and content delivery networks (CDNs).

Amidst the ongoing Europe’s digital connectivity debate, CISPE aims to bring together a panel of expert voices to shed light on the unique characteristics of the cloud and CDN sector, as well as their customers.

The event will be available both in-person and online, to allow wide participation. If you would like to register, please use this link or click on the button below.
