VAT head says competition essential for broadband expansion

Monday 2 February 2015 | 11:08 CET | News
Newly elected president of the Association of Alternative Telecom Network Operators (VAT), Jan Trionow, has highlighted the importance of promoting competition when settings terms for funding conditions for broadband expansion, to prevent A1 Telekom Austria from being the sole beneficiary. He elaborated that unrestricted and equal access must be granted for all competitors when deploying broadband in an area. Trionow added that VAT's plan for 2015 was to identify the key regulatory obstacles for broadband expansion, and to remove them in collaboration with politicians and the ministry.
