Commission approves €35 million of regional funds for a major broadband project in Poland
(22 January 2013)
The European Commission has approved an investment of €34.7 million from the European Regional Development fund (ERDF) for the construction of 1410 km broadband infrastructure in the Polish region Swietokrzyskie. As a direct result of the project, 220,000 more people will gain access to broadband in one of the less developed regions of Poland. This project brings the country closer to reaching the objectives of the Digital Agenda for Europe in terms of basic broadband and Next Generation Access and opens the door to the digital economy in this region.
