The European Commission said it has published new guidance to help governments invest in broadband. It is aimed at any public authority investing in broadband or looking at co-funding projects with EU structural and investment funds (ESIF). The handbook explains how to design a good project from the start and whom to contact at regional and EU level to obtain funding and advice. It also outlines the minimum conditions for state aid approval.
