Whether it’s to catch up with friends or stream the latest episode of my favourite TV show, in the EU I have the right to a basic internet connection at home. So if I’m checking in to the Czech Republic, or uploading a selfie from Spain, I know that I can use the best possible home internet connection at a fixed, affordable price.

MY CONNECTION. MY LIFE.
Surf the internet from any country in the EU
Looking for local news or information on the next football World Cup? Whatever my interest, internet service providers in the EU cannot slow down or block the content I access to promote one website over another. As long as it’s legal, secure and the network is not exceptionally busy, I can choose how I use the internet.
The EU believes that nothing should stand in the way of a good film, album or game – especially national borders. That’s why I can access my subscriptions to online video and music streaming services wherever I travel in the EU. Just one more episode, then?
Checking the train timetable on the move? I want to rely on free public Wi-Fi rather than using up my valuable data allowance. The EU is investing €120 million into the installation of free public Wi-Fi hotspots in up to 8,000 different locations across Europe, so that I can remain connected wherever I am.
How it works
EU laws mean that no matter how rural or remote the area in which I live is, in the EU I get guaranteed access to the best possible internet connection at an affordable price. I’m able to access thousands of free Wi-Fi hotspots across Europe and take my video, music, gaming and sports subscription services with me wherever I go.
