Description / Explanation

The Łodzkie Voivodeship attempts to provide open access to broadband services in order to stimulate the development of the modern electronic economy in the region. The Voivodeship has implemented the project of Łódź Regional Teleinformatic Network, which has over one thousand kilometres of backbone and distribution networks. It is open to private operators to obtain access to the ‘last mile’ infrastructure. Thus, a network covering more than 300 000 people has already been built with low maintenance cost.
