EC to propose 100 Mbps for all by 2025 - report

Monday 18 July 2016 | 11:37 CET | News
The European Commission wants to set a new target for bringing 100 Mbps to all the EU by 2025 and plans to call for more public funds to build faster networks, according to a leaked document obtained by EurActiv.com. The Commission is expected to publish the proposal on 21 September along with its proposals to overhaul the telecom regulatory framework. This is expected to include a proposal for giving national regulators more power to sanction "dominant operators that unjustifiably deviate from their declared intentions" to invest in networks.
