Broadband Europe is specifically addressed to citizens as well as to local decision-makers, NGOs, civil servants, etc. who wish to take an active part in making the objectives of the EU – i.e. giving access to 30 Mbps connectivity to every European and half of the households a subscription at 100 Mbps by 2020 – a success.
Broadband Europe also hosts the Europe-wide competition for a European Broadband Award aimed at identifying the best projects of high-speed broadband networks.
A public consultation on the needs for internet speed and quality beyond 2020 was launched by the European Commission end of 2015. Citizens, industry representatives, public authorities, representatives from civil society organisations and researchers were invited to participate. The Commission analysed the results, identifying challenges and presenting a proposal to address them. The first results and the synopsis report have been published.
