Polish operators are planning record levels of investments in broadband infrastructure, both fibre-optics and mobile, reports Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. T-Mobile Poland, Orange Poland, Multimedia Polska and Vectra are already among the beneficiaries of state aid from the Operational Programme Digital Poland (POPC). The total budget of the programme is EUR 1 billion. UPC Poland does not plan to take advantage of the state aid, but it plans to invest quite a high amount in infrastructure development (PLN 4 billion).
