  • ERDF : Current period 15bn of which 2.3bn for ICT infrastructures of which 40% committed. MFF: 201.6 bn overall for less developed (162) /transition regions (39) (53.1 bn for MDRs) allocation depend on national operational programming Rural : Current period: 360 M – In early summer about 40% of the EERP for broadband was contracted. Should be higher now as some countries had state aid schemes approved (PT) and call for tenders were running before at that time (e.g., IT). The two cases that remain a bit controvercial for the moment are Poland and Greece, you know that. In total these countries keep about 100 million euro for broadband, so once they start implementing then we can be sure that the EERP will be fully taken up. MFF: 101bn headline fro Rural development. Article 21: Basic services and village renewal in rural areas includes broadband infrastructure (creation, improvement and expansion, passive broadband infrastructure and provision of access); Support under this measure shall only concern small-scale infrastructure, as defined by each Member State in the programme. However, rural development programmes may provide for specific derogations from this rule for investments in broadband and renewable energy. In this case, clear criteria ensuring complementarity with support under other Union instruments shall be provided

    5. 5. Investment challenge up to € 270 billion of investment required to bring fast broadband to all households by 2020 Legend pop density (Nuts 3 Pop/km 2 ) OOO <100/rural - market failure = subsidies SF, EAFRD, CEF OOO 100-500/ suburban = coinvestment OOO > 500/ urban no intervention
    6. 6. Wired Broadband Penetration Rate, July 2011 (Preliminary)
    7. 7. Mobile Broadband Penetration Rate, July 2011 (Preliminary)
