Guide to EU Funding for Broadband

16/08/2017
The European Union has made available financial tools that can boost broadband investment in order to support Member States and private investors, as well as to promote economic growth and opportunities.

Years of crisis have posed a threat to Europe’s potential for innovative growth and competitiveness. At the same time the economy and society of Europe need to make the most of digital evolution.

The Commission’s strategy on connectivity for a European Gigabit Society, sets a vision of Europe where availability of very high capacity networks enable the widespread use of products, services and applications in the Digital Single Market. This objective is even more challenging in rural areas and other disadvantaged regions (remote, mountainous or sparsely
populated areas) where depopulation and a lack of economic opportunities are higher.

Today, broadband projects in the Member States are struggling to find grants and funds for investment. In order to support Member States and private investors, as well as to promote economic growth and opportunities, the European Union has made available financial tools that can boost broadband investment.

This guide will help understand the broadband investment tools provided by the European Union. The purpose of all these funds is to invest in job creation and a sustainable and healthy European economy.
