    RegioStars 2010: High Speed Broadband

    01/05/2010This video showcases the RegioStars 2010 winner in the “Broadband coverage in less developed regions or rural areas” category. Broadband coverage is a central element when it comes to guaranteeing competitiveness in the world today. In more sparsely populated regions, private telecommunications operators are often reticent about shouldering the risk of investing in what are commonly referred to as “white zones”. Faced with this challenge, the Auvergne region established a public/private partnership (PPP) in 2005 to extend broadband coverage to all homes. The project was finalised in early 2009.
