Press conference by Neelie Kroes on the proposal to reduce the cost of deploying broadband

82 views

On 26 March 2013, Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of the Digital Agenda, gave in Brussels a press conference on the new rules proposed by the European Commission to cut by 30% the cost of rolling out high-speed Internet. Civil engineering, such as the digging up of roads to lay down fibre, accounts for up to 80% of the cost of deploying high-speed networks. High-speed broadband is the backbone of the telecoms and wider Digital Single Market, the European Commission is attempting to build. Its rollout is currently slowed down by a patchwork of rules and administrative practices at national and sub-national levels.
