This thematic group will focus on the mapping methodology of broadband and infrastructures, as well as on strategy choices for planning broadband projects. The following models will be explored: the publicly-run and privately-run municipal network models; the community broadband model; and the operator subsidy model (gap-funding). Registration is open to all members of the European Broadband Competence Offices (BCOs) Network. The final agenda will be made available to participants directly.
