About

A few words about us

EuroISPA is a pan European association of European Internet Services Providers Associations (ISPAs). It is the world's largest association of Internet Services Providers (ISPs), representing  over 2300 ISPs across the EU and EFTA countries - including ISPs from Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Romania and the UK.

The association was established in 1997 to represent the European ISP industry on EU policy and legislative issues and to facilitate the exchange of best-practices between national ISP associations. Its secretariat is located in Brussels.

EuroISPA is recognised as the voice of the EU ISP industry and is the largest 'umbrella' association of Internet Services Providers in the world. The reason for EuroISPA's success to date is doubtlessly that it reflects the views of ISPs of all sizes from across its member base.

Mission Statement

EuroISPA was established to achieve several important objectives:

  • To protect and promote the interests of Europe as a whole within the global Internet, securing a premier position for Europe in the key industry of the new Millennium.

  • To help deliver the benefits of this new technology of liberation and empowerment to individuals, while at the same time, meeting the legitimate concerns of parents and others responsible for the more vulnerable members of society.

  • To encourage the development of a free and open telecommunications market, something of great benefit to society as a whole, but essential to the healthy development of the Internet.

  • To promote the interests of our members and provide common services to them where these cannot be received elsewhere.
