The availability of high speed broadband for businesses and individuals in a territory is a major factor of competitiveness.

Elected representatives and local authorities cannot ignore this challenge, especially in regions of low population density where private operators do not see any potential future profitability deploying FTTH networks.

That is why, throughout Europe, public initiatives have emerged and are involved in the financing and construction of FTTH networks. Some go so far to create or participate in the creation of infrastructure operators embrassing the passive layer and even sometime the active and commercial layers.


The local authorities are faced with the following challenges:

  • Consider deploying FTTH networks to increase the attractiveness and competitiveness of regions.
  • Establish business plan upstream to convince co-funding (state, operator, financial ...).
  • Organize tenders for the networks builders controlling the specifications in sufficient technical details.
  • Control the level of public spending by controlling the budget of the deployment.
