I believe that the European Union is not making enough efforts to create a Single Digital Market. Certain steps and measures are taken in this direction and may eventually become a reality. It would be great to be able to make calls to any EU country with no extra charge and watch the demanded videos without restriction. This is not protectionism of culture. I think it's my right to watch what I want, even if it's American or other videos. Instead, the EU needs to promote its culture and values ​​more, to learn from America and to think about why American culture is so popular and widespread. Prohibiting this is not a way out, but better is to show your own benefits and allow users to think and decide for themselves what product toconsume or buy. There are many ways to solve this, and now EU need to find a lot of skilled workers to create a new digital market. It may be a supranational company that deals with broadcasting, roaming, etc.

The European Union is putting the necessary means in place to have a good digital market. EU action ensures equal access to products and services, creates an enabling environment in Europe for innovative, dynamic and secure online ecosystems, and ensures that every citizen, every company and every public administration in Europe can trust online services and benefit from the digital revolution.

As far I am concerned I can say that the existence of the single market in Europe is so important because it was conceived with the aim of guaranteeing equal access to products and services, creating in Europe an environment favorable to ecosystems Innovative, dynamic and secure online, and to ensure that every citizen, every company and every public administration in Europe can trust online services and take advantage of the digital revolution. the statistics, the Commission is preparing to update it to take account of new challenges and new technologies. Cyber sécurity infrastructures are absolutely necessary everywhere in the EU so that everyone can enjoy high-speed connectivity in any pas far as I am concerned I can say that the existence of the single market in Europe is so important because it was conceived with the aim of guaranteeing equal access to products and services, creating in Europe an environment favorable to ecosystems Innovative, dynamic and secure online, and to ensure that every citizen, every company and every public administrationlace in complete safety. An agreement has already been reached on new strong European rules on the protection of personal data. It is now necessary to ensure that non-personal data can circulate freely in order to contribute to the functioning of connected cars and eHealth services. With high-performance computing and a workforce with digital skills, the Union will be able to make the most of a data-driven economy. All these areas are essential to Europe's digital future.

In my opinion, the EU strategy about Digital Single Market (DSM) is a big process in connecting the european citizens. When i say this, I think at the fact that beside the fact that we can travel or work in the EU country with our citizenship only the same thing we can also do when we talk about digital services. I think that the idea of this project s to be allowed to use your digital devices with the network from your country without being forced to buy/ transfer to the one from the ”second” country. I remember that the roaming program was proposed at the EU Council by a Romanian ( and i feel glad about this) and it was an wonderful idea for all the countries because you can buy an option for your phone for a limited time without being supposed to transfer all your digital information to an different network for a limited time ( also happening with a low cost). The fact that I agree with the topic with this course is based on the pillars of the DSM: 1. the access ( the strategy gives us better access with some subtle restrictions, but the digital services remain wide open and accessible), 2. environment ( the conditions and the field are diverse and with the opportunities of choosing the right ones with some soft regulations), 3. economy & strategy ( the indeed the idea of this strategy is based on the economy of the services and the idea of giving an wide access to develop services in the EU market without too many restrictions). The DSM is also an part of the free circulation idea of creating the EU. On the same time, if we think at the security of our data in this services, I think it is just an perspective approach. because also in your country can be supposed to an incident with the market also that in the EU market, but with the right knowledge, this can be avoided. I think that the DSM strategy it has the problem of data security under the ”surveillance”.

I think that EU can do it better, like anyone anything else, especially in the area of ​​mobile phone accessibility. However, when it comes to other aspects of the digital market, you should always be aware of information security. The results of the information war and its importance for the security of the whole country were well felt by the Ukrainians. Information in today's environment is a very important resource for development. Economic and political leaders actively use the necessary information to promote their own interests. Therefore, the protection of personal data is very important. That is why the creation of a digital single market is a necessary step in the development of the EU, but it must be done with a sufficient level of individual protection.

First time when I heard about ending the Roaming fees for all EU citizens I was impressed. I was disappointed after one month when GSM companies obtained some restrictions because they lose money... After 2 months they impose a minimum 10 euro option for anyone who travels in the EU zone. After another month they impose a maximum of 3 months of using roaming when you are abroad. The digital content of pay-TV is very limited at this time. In the summertime, I travel across some countries and I can access my HBO GO account only in Slovakia. Poland, Germany, Czech republic deny my access. So all sounds good but for now, companies can impose limitations. I wonder when these limitations disappear...

How could the "enough" limit be reached if the digital market changes from day to day?

No, because you still cannot access foreign mobile phone or pay-TV services from home. Also the Roaming fees are quite high and there is a maximum of 3 months of using Roaming services.

The European Union is literally digitizing its economy, providing for an increase in the global impact of the latest technologies and an increase in revenues from e-Commerce, data exchange and services. The realities of the global world dictate such conditions for the modernization of economies and the creation of clear rules for a new innovative era. Today, single digital market strategy is successfully implemented in Europe. According to European experts, DSM can bring the United Europe an additional 415 billion euros annually and create hundreds of thousands of jobs.

According to McKinseyGlobalInstitute research, cross-border data flows have increased 45 times over the past decade and 9 times by 2020. Given the challenge of rapid change, the EU has begun to create a new common market - a digital one that should strengthen existing economic freedoms and foundations throughout the community and develop digital technologies - to take full advantage of them, minimize risks, respond quickly to challenges and to guarantee ciber-security. Europe has a long way to go to create a digital single market, but it is on the right way.
