Digital Alps: Partnering with Broadband Competence Offices to build a digital connectivity roadmap for the Alpine Region

By Ashya Lane-Spollen, Digital Communications Manager BCO Network Support Facility

Mountain regions have much to gain from digitalisation and broadband connectivity. There is great potential for Smart Villages, SMEs, and access to online services in healthcare, education and much more. Mountain communities, however, face greater obstacles than most in becoming full participants in the European Union’s Digital Decade. Their remoteness, in terms of distance and topography, combined with smaller populations, make them technically and financially challenging to reach with broadband infrastructure.

Within this context, the European Network of Broadband Competence Offices (BCO Network)’s Support Facility was invited to speak at the Digital Alps Conference (27-28 May 2021) on the topic of future-proof digital infrastructures for the Alpine area, and how BCOs can be high-value partners for mountain regions in overcoming the planning, funding and implementation hurdles of their broadband infrastructure projects.

Find out in this article how the BCO network can help mountain stakeholders to develop strategies for broadband deployment.
