Broadband coverage in Europe 2016
Mapping progress towards the coverage objectives of the Digital Agenda : final report - Study
The Broadband Coverage in Europe study is designed to monitor the progress of EU Member States toward their specific broadband coverage objectives – namely: ‘Universal Broadband Coverage with speeds at least 30 Mbps by 2020’ and ‘Broadband Coverage of 50% of households with speeds at least 100 Mbps by 2020’. This report covers thirty-one countries across Europe – the EU 28, plus Norway, Iceland and Switzerland, and analyses the availability of nine broadband technologies (DSL, VDSL, cable modem, DOCSIS 3, FTTP, WiMAX, HSPA, LTE and satellite) across each market, at national and rural levels.... In addition, various combination categories indicating the availability of one or more forms of broadband connection are also published. These cover overall fixed & wireless broadband availability, fixed broadband availability and next-generation access (NGA) availability. Europe-wide overview, country comparisons and year-on-year trends are provided in this report. Additionally, broadband coverage developments in study countries are discussed in individual country chapters.
