Study on Broadband and Infrastructure Mapping
The Commission has launched a call for tender concerning broadband mapping initiatives of any kind (e.g. mapping of physical infrastructure, services or other broadband-relevant information). The study should provide authorities, consumers and industry with essential information. This information should allow policy makers and national regulatory authorities and other relevant entities, including market players to identify underserved areas and areas for improvement. They would also help the exploitation of synergies between networks including transport, energy, water and sewer that contribute to reducing the high costs of deployment. The deadline for submitting bids is 30 October 2012.
