Study on Broadband Coverage 2011

The purpose of the Broadband Coverage in Europe in 2011 (BCE 2011) project is to support the objectives of the European Union’s Digital Agenda. Two of the Agenda’s key objectives are to provide all European Union citizens with basic broadband coverage by 2013 and broadband speeds of at least 30 megabits per second by 2020. BCE 2011 is designed to measure progress towards that objective and identify where action will be needed to achieve it.

This study monitors the progress on the broadband coverage objectives of the Digital Agenda (basic broadband access for all by 2013 and high speed broadband access with at least 30 Mbps download speed for all by 2020), i.e. the household coverage of different fixed and wireless broadband technologies with a special focus on Next Generation Access technologies.

The project was commissioned by the Directorate General for Information Society and Media, DG INFSO (now DG Connect). Neelie Kroes, the Vice President of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda for Europe, has pointed out that “accurate data is critical for delivering policy and regulation that enables broadband internet for all Europeans.”
