Rocio Concha, Which? Director of Policy and Advocacy, said:
“Reforming the competition regime will help to build a fairer and more competitive tech sector that will work better for consumers, giving them more control and more choice – including over how their data will be collected and used.
“It will be crucial that the government provides the new Digital Markets Unit with the necessary tools, including robust oversight and tough enforcement powers to punish companies that act anti-competitively.
“Which? looks forward to working alongside the government and industry leaders to ensure that consumers truly benefit from the digital products and services that are now part of their everyday lives.”
