Flevoland to support study on rural broadband

Friday 19 September 2014 | 10:11 CET | News
The provincial government in Flevoland has agreed to support a study into bringing a fibre network to outlying areas of the Dutch province. The proposal came from VVD member Irene van Hooff, who wants the local government to take a lead role in bringing faster broadband to residents and businesses in rural areas, as market payers have yet to take the initiative. While the province has already invested EUR 10 million in bringing infrastructure to the area, 30 percent of homes and businesses are still without a connection.
