In these videos, members of the Broadband Competence Offices (BCO) Network explain the role and impact of BCOs in their areas, and how they work with both public and private national, regional and local stakeholders to bring broadband to their communities. Their goal is to support their areas to achieve the Gigabit Society connectivity objectives, and to ensure that everyone is able to benefit from the opportunities of the Digital Single Market.

The Broadband Competence Offices (BCO) Network, now in its second year, aims to connect national and regional broadband offices across the EU in order to exchange knowledge on good practices, overcome the hurdles of broadband deployment, and bring greater connectivity and services to all EU citizens.

In these three interviews, the national BCO of Germany and the Regional Broadband Offices of Lower Saxony (Germany) and Trentino (Italy) present examples of good practices in running a BCO at national and regional level, collaborating with fellow BCOs and exchanging experiences across the Network.
