Broadband is an important tool for increasing productivity and competitiveness. This paper attempts to measure the accumulative impact and effectiveness of broadband public infrastructures and services on the economy of South East Europe (SEE) areas. To this direction, we focus on evaluating the correlation between broadband and each country’s growth and employment. Moreover, we estimate the cost savings achieved by the extended usage of e-services, and we evaluate the potential cost savings that will follow the increase of e-services utilization the next years. The results of our analysis show that broadband may have positive impact on growth and employment and that the possible savings are substantial.
