THE NEXT GENERATION NETWORKS IN RURAL TERRITORIES – BROADBAND PROJECT
In 2010 the European Union adopted the strategy "Europe 2020",which sets out the EU development goals and the tasks to be implemented in order to achieve the same. One of them is to improve access for the Europeans to fast and ultra fast internet. The Commission communication "Digital agenda for Europe" 26.08.2010 COM has been drawn up for implementation of this task.
It provides that until 2020 it is necessary to ensure for all the citizens of the European Union (EU) access to broadband internet at a speed of at least 30 Mbit/s, but 50% or more of households to be equipped with internet connection at a speed above 100 Mbit/s.
VAS "Latvijas Valsts radio un televīzijas centrs" has been approved as the project funding recipient and implementer for the purpose that throughout the country there would be access to high quality internet and Latvia would ensure the attainment of objectives of the Europe 2020 initiative.
