Super-speed broadband driven by competitive providers
ECTA calls for open access to fibre to boost broadband speeds and services
Brussels, 1st September 2008 – Europe now has over 100 million broadband subscribers according to the latest Broadband Scorecard released today by ECTA. The results of its twice-yearly survey also show that altnets, or competitive providers, and not the large incumbents which own much of the telecom infrastructure, are leading in provision of super broadband connection speeds above 10Mbits/sec, as well as driving the uptake of high-tech services. Speeds and services have become the next broadband battleground, according to the pro-competition body.
