Good Practice Information

This good practice aims to provide backbone and (regional) distribution infrastructure for the purposes of an NGA network in order to:
-eliminate market failures (lack of investments in broadband infrastructure which results in absence of broadband access offer or in availability of only one such offer with inadequate terms, i.e., materially worse than in areas with effective competition)

-ensure that areas regarded by operators as unprofitable for development of NGA networks within reasonable time, benefit from material influence of NGA networks on economy and do not suffer from new digital divide with regard to NGA networks.
