Description / Explanation

The Rural Broadband project is a national project, supported by EU funds and implemented via a Public Private Partnership. It provides broadband infrastructure coverage and affordable connectivity services to the citizens of remote areas of Greece - previously deprived of the full benefits of broadband. With this project, high-capacity networks reached remote areas where private players would not invest due to its low commercial value. It developed a broadband infrastructure network to cover white areas located in the northern, central and southern regions of Greece and it covers almost 45% of the Greek territory (geographically), i.e. 5 077 villages/settlements and 525 287 inhabitants of rural and insular areas of the country.
