Digital Agenda Assembly Report on Facilitating Broadband Investments

A parallel workshop on Facilitating Wide-Scale Broadband Investments was held during the first Digital Agenda Assembly. The main aim of the workshop was to explore key solutions and challenges to the creation of investments, in order to meet the broadband targets set by the Digital Agenda for Europe.

Some of the main points from the workshop included:

  • the absence of significant incentives to switch to fibre was addressed, and a number of ideas to tackle this issue was considered
  • transparency of information on actual connection speeds was identified as a key factor to enable consumers’ awareness and competition
  • the need for further harmonisation and a global approach to foster investments in the EU was discussed.
