The different network industries have traditionally been in support of public policies. They often have public or universal services missions or even concrete mandates. As digitalization starts to intermediate many of the traditional network industry (services), questions about the future of public services arises: should there be something like a digital public service? And how would it look like? Does public service become obsolete with digitalization? Will digital platforms become public service providers? Papers on these and similar questions will be welcome for this special issue.
