Online workshop on network deployment drivers and barriers

Organised by DG CONNECT


DG Connect is organising a participatory online workshop to discuss the main drivers and barriers for network deployment on 27 January 2021, from 10.00 - 15.30.

The participatory workshop, on the evaluation and review of the Broadband Cost Reduction Directive will focus on three topics:

  • drivers of electronic communications networks deployment
  • persisting barriers and solutions
  • challenges regarding permit granting for network installation

The topics will be addressed in different breakout sessions, which will be driven by several questions provided to the participants beforehand.


DG Connect counts on the participation of a variety of stakeholders ranging from electronic communications operators, other network operators, physical infrastructure operators as well as their respective associations, public authorities (national, regional or local) dealing with the tasks established in the Directive (permit granting, dispute resolution, single information point, etc.), citizens, consumer associations, civil society organisations, businesses and experts.
