Internet, Online activities and ICT standards

Information society

Internet usage is widespread throughout the European Union (EU). Nearly one person in two uses the Internet on a daily basis within the EU. The EU therefore faces a number of technical challenges such as the provision of a large number of virtual addresses and storage and transfer capacity, and the development of compatible technical standards throughout its territory, in order to guarantee interoperability, online privacy and accessibility.

The EU is also endeavouring to combat illegal online activities by introducing measures such as the Safer Internet Programme 2009-2013.
