The European Commission has set ambitious targets for the roll-out of very high capacity networks as it looks to achieve its objective of delivering the gigabit society in Europe by 2025. Many countries look set to miss these targets however, and Europe more broadly is lagging behind benchmarks that are being seen in other regions around the world.
We’ll take stock of the current situation with regards to the rollout of full-fibre broadband networks across Europe, the challenges and barriers to deployment that are being faced, and the path forward to overcome these and ensure that the economic, social and environmental benefits of ubiquitous high-speed broadband connectivity are felt as soon as possible.

Forum Europe are proud to present ‘Under the Spotlight…’ – a strategic series of virtual EU policy events focussing on a range of key policy files and topics across different subject areas.
Working alongside thought-leaders and policymakers, each event will put a specific area ‘under the spotlight’ – providing a platform for a detailed discussion on the policy issues involved. By bringing together key stakeholders in this way, the aim of the series is to support transparency and inclusion in the policymaking process in a format that is accessible to all.
