Comment Neelie
[...] On our side, the Commission has proposed for the next EU Financial Perspective a 9.2 billion euro "Connecting Europe Facility". This will fund the expansion of a high speed broadband network throughout Europe, and will also ensure interoperability of the public services which many Member States are currently bringing online. This EU money would leverage other private and public funds. Indeed the money we propose to set aside for broadband infrastructure could generate, overall, between 50 and 100 billion euros in investment.
