PTS set to stop handling broadband co-financing

Friday 14 June 2013 | 11:07 CET | News
Swedish post and telecoms regulator PTS said a preliminary report from the assessment of the government's broadband strategy says that the national co-financing handled by PTS should be merged with the funding that the county council boards' association manages within the EU's rural development programme. Only one authority would be processing funding applications, thereby increasing efficiency and simplifying planning and expansion of broadband networks. PTS' role would be to set national requirements for projects applying for funding and to monitor financing on a national level.
