Comparative analysis on the availability of sharable physical infrastructures and related data resources in selected SEE areas

This report is the deliverable T325 of the SIVA project, “Comparative analysis on the availability of sharable physical infrastructures and related data resources in selected SEE areas”, which consists the fifth task of the Activity A3.2 “Analysis of the current virtual accessibility situation in South East Europe”.

 

The main purpose of this report is to present basic facts about infrastructure sharing agreements that aim at the reduction of broadband deployment cost, complying at the same time with the general European competition rules. Special attention is given to agreements that aim specifically at the reduction of the digital divide i.e. they regard joint investments made for the promotion of broadband in not served or underserved areas. The analysis takes place first through the establishment of the rationale and the existing framework regarding sharing network agreements of broadband in the wider area of Europe. It concludes with the presentation of specific cases of agreements in the area of the Consortium and the main findings from their comparison. The presentation of the cases focuses on specific areas of interest, facilitating thus their comparison.
