Re-thinking the Digital Agenda for Europe Report

This new WIK report, “Re-thinking the Digital Agenda for Europe,” was commissioned by Liberty Global and finds that European policymakers are paying insufficient attention to the potential of cable networks to deliver a substantial portion of the European Commission’s Digital Agenda targets, and considers available solutions to reduce the cost of full broadband deployment. It argues that a more technologically neutral approach to the Digital Agenda targets could provide benefits to consumers and to the competitive process itself. The report also:

  • Quotes European Investment Bank (EIB) analysis that cable competition to incumbent telecom operators can lower high-speed broadband deployment costs by up to 30%
  • Examines what the medium bandwidth expectations of consumers are Finds that cable investment spurs investment into FTTN/VDSL by telecom incumbents
  • Illustrates the coverage of cable, telecoms and mobile networks and their service uptake across Europe
  • Examines the technology and performance of cable networks, and their short term evolution toward symmetrical high-speed broadband services
