|Estonia’s National Broadband Plan Hints at FTTH|
Tallinn policy makers have unveiled a 6 billion kroons (€376m) project to build a new nationwide broadband network by 2015.
Reaching all of the country’s 1.3m homes and offices with 100Mbps fibre optic services, the network will be paid for via a combination of EU structural funds, and private finance.
Estonia is currently suffering badly from the effects of the global recession, and this project is seen as a mechanism for stimulating new economic activity and job creation.
