Comment Neelie
[...] We propose to invest n €9 billion of Union funds in these crucial digital infrastructures. We expect that at least €7 billion from the CEF will be leveraged through new financial instruments to support investment of more than €50 billion and up to €100 billion in high-speed broadband infrastructure. This means about 45 million households or over 100 million citizens and consumers connected to high-speed broadband as a result of EU intervention. The remainder of the money will support the European public and networked service infrastructures.
