Spain cuts high-speed broadband red tape

Friday 9 September 2016 | 15:22 CET | News
Spain's industry ministry has announced that EU directive 2014/61/EU on measures to reduce the cost of deploying high-speed electronic communications networks has been transposed into the country's legislation. Operators laying out high-speed broadband networks will now find it easier to access physical infrastructure such as ducts, poles or masts belonging to energy and other utilities, as well as roads and railway lines. Measures will also be taken to coordinate civil works more efficiently to avoid having to reopen street ducts when installing fibre-optic networks.
