In 2014 the Polish Government must set the course for the next five years. Thanks to funding from the European Union (2007–2013), long-distance fibre networks have been installed across the country. Now the Government must decide how to connect end users into that network, setting out a comprehensive plan to connect the country’s citizens by the year 2020 – in line with the targets set out in the Digital Agenda for Europe.
“Now is the time to make the right decision for Poland’s future,” said Karin Ahl, President of the FTTH Council Europe. “FTTH is the only future-proof way to build broadband access networks, and it is our strongly-held view that public money should ONLY be spent on future-proof infrastructure. We are encouraged by what we hear, and we hope that Poland will soon join the world’s leading FTTH economies!”
