National Broadband Plans in Europe - Status, Strategies, and Objectives is a new Telecom Insider Report by the publisher, provides an overview of the national broadband plans (NBPs) adopted by the governments in Europe and of the key strategies and mechanisms deployed to help achieve the targets set by the NBPs.

The report offers an overview of the efforts taken by governments in Europe to develop broadband infrastructure. It delivers comprehensive proprietary data and insights from research into NBPs adopted by European countries. This presentation-quality report provides an analysis of government initiatives and operator involvement in broadband infrastructure development. It also analyzes the key mechanisms and strategies deployed to support the NBPs.

It provides in-depth analysis of the following -
  • Regional market context providing FBB progress and analyzing the impact of economic development on broadband penetration in several European countries.
  • Analysis of priorities set under NBPs such as targets, technology, funding mechanisms, and the role of governments as well as private operators.
  • Case studies on two NBPs (the UK and France) with a focus on the analysis of targets, goals, government initiatives, operator involvement, and progress over the period.
  • Key findings, detailing the analysis of NBPs on several parameters such as targets, funding strategies, preferred technologies, and strategies adopted by government to achieve the targets.

  • The region features differences in broadband penetration levels owing to factors including differences in income levels, the maturity of the telecom sector, and the available funding for broadband rollout.
  • European countries are mainly targeting to improve broadband penetration nationally, and to reduce the digital divide by improving broadband connectivity in rural areas.
  • Numerous countries are targeting to provide broadband coverage with relatively lower speed in the short term, however, long-term targets include the provision of broadband services with faster speed.
  • Several initiatives are being harnessed by the different broadband ecosystem players to improve broadband coverage, speeds and uptake. These include FBB wholesale agreements, forming infrastructure companies, open access fiber sharing models, 5G deployment, and government funding programs.
