The European Commission has published eleven state aid guiding templates to assist Member States in the design of their national recovery and resilience plans in line with EU State aid rules. The Recovery and Resilience Facility template for broadband (deployment and take-up of fixed and mobile very high capacity networks, including 5G and fibre networks) provides extensive guidance on important matters, including how to design market conform public investment. The Commission will treat measures that do constitute State aid and require individual approval as a matter of priority.
