Major objectives The challenge is to replace the existing copper access networks with fibre-optic networks. The goal of this master plan is therefore to use the available funds of the "broadband billion" to bring fibre-optic technology applied in fixed and mobile networks as close as possible to the end user. The expansion of broadband infrastructure is in line with the Digital Agenda of the European Union (European Commission 2010).
Short Summary The government programme of the Federal Government states that the Federal Government is committed to implement a "digital campaign", in particular the nationwide availability of high-performance broadband infrastructures. The Federal Government regards the reduction of digital gaps (city/country and old/young) a major step in achieving such regional and/or socio-political objectives and the broadband campaign is an important contribution to this.
