From the digital towards the gigabit society

Andreas Scheuer, Bundesminister

We want to have fibre optic - in every region and every municipality. To this end, we are supporting the broadband roll-out with 11 billion euros wherever private sector parties are not investing in the roll-out. We have significantly simplified the application process. The first approval is granted within less than two months. With our funding support, we have already been able to ensure high-speed Internet coverage for more than 2.2 million households, which were not viable for investments from private sector parties.
