Polish regional broadband grids cause subcontractors trouble

Monday 30 May 2016 | 11:29 CET | News
The construction of more than 29,000 kilometres of broadband networks in Poland under fourteen regional broadband network projects is a success that the Ministry of Digitalisation presented recently. However, there are some negative aspects, too, reports Telko.in. The main issue is not the low traffic on the networks and lack of interest among local ISPs, but that some of the projects have caused financial problems and bankruptcy to subcontractors participating in the investments as part of a long chain.
