EU4Digital Broadband Strategies in the EaP region

Project Description
The EU-supported "EU4Digital Broadband Strategies in the EaP region" project supports the Eastern Partner countries in their development and early implementation of national broadband strategies, in line with relevant EU best practices and strategies, by providing technical assistance and capacity building support.
Specific Objective
The main objective of the Project is to accelerate broadband deployment in the Eastern Partnership region, through the roll-out of national broadband strategies, in line with similar EU best practices and strategies.

Accelerating broadband deployment in the EaP region is of vital importance, not just in terms of its potential to boost GDP growth (estimated at between €2.9 billion and €4.3 billion for the EaP region, for fixed broadband alone), but also for providing the essential connectivity for the deployment of eServices for businesses and citizens.
Expected Results
The project carries out the following activities:

-Benchmarking Study and Gap analysis.
-Support to improve legal and regulatory frameworks.
-Support broadband mapping.
-Promote the sharing of experiences and best practices.
-Formulate and support implementation of broadband strategies.
