EU to Work Harder to Hit Broadband Targets

An EU report indicates that the European governments are in danger of missing targets for fast broadband roll out. The target is that every European will have broadband access by 2013.

More than a quarter of citizens now have access to broadband, but the report indicates that things are not moving as quickly as they should be.

“Fast broadband is digital oxygen, essential for Europe’s prosperity and well-being. Take up and available speeds are improving, but we need to do more to reach our very fast broadband targets,” said
Neelie Kroes, Commission vice-president for the digital agenda.

“In particular, we need urgent agreement on our proposal to ensure radio spectrum is available for mobile broadband, for which demand is growing very fast.”
