EU makes the broadband rules


by David Allen

The EU are planning to get involved into the future development of the broadband network, and seek to find when it is reasonable for government to give public funds for the development of next generation broadband services.

Currently this is only a month long consultation, but the EU will be drafting guidelines on when they feel it is right for governments to issue grants.

Yet it seems that the EU has a plan to ensure that all twenty seven countries within the EU have a hundred per cent coverage of high speed broadband by 2010!

For countries that do not have a full coverage of broadband this could be good news, as the EU should recognise that public investment is required, whether that happens is a different matter.
