(Telecompaper) Public funding for expanding broadband in the EU is falling short and will not be enough to achieve the goal of fibre for all, according to a report from the think tank Centre on Regulation in Europe (CERRE). The study found that combined public funding to support broadband deployment in the period to 2020 amounts to around EUR 7 billion per year, and at this rate, it will take Europe nearly 30 years to meet its FTTH targets.
