New direction in communications policy l  Some reasons for the policy change: ü  Broadband connections are no longer luxury products but necessary tools in day-to-day life. ü  Without adequate communications connections citizens cannot access ü  information society services. ü  Some telecommunications operators are cutting back services in the fixed copper telecommunications network in rural areas

  17. 17. 100 Mbit/s by 2015l  By the end of 2015 all permanent residences shall be within two kilometres reach of high-speed connection permitting at least 100 Mbit/s connections.l  Consumers will acquire their subscriber connection at their own expense.l  In built-up areas telecom operators will build high- speed connections on market terms. This will achieve a population coverage of around 95%.
  18. 18. 100 Mbit/s by 2015l  Extending the coverage to 100% will require that partly subsidised high-speed connections will be built to around 130,000 households in rural areas.l  Public aid – two thirds – will be provided by the state, municipalities and the EUl  The costs of the project will amount to about 200 million euros, of which telecom operators will pay at least one third.l  Implementation in 2009 2015
