The Committee took place on Tuesday for this area to develop a new program.
EU digital policies Commissioner, NeelieKroes said: "Everyone should enjoy high-speed broadband ... I hope to wipe out all the red tape that hinder us to achieve this goal, the applicable rules in most regions are detrimental to Europeans’ compatibility. "
The European Commission, civil engineering (including the actual mining road, laying of optical fiber) accounting for the deployment of 80% of the cost of high-speed network. The Commission estimates that the new program can reduce expenses by 400-600 million Euros. It must take about two years time before the plan pass the examination of European Parliament and the EU's 27 member states.
According to the proposed rules, all new buildings must be pre-installed the high-speed broadband, which will need to coordinate more utilities sector, so that the network cable can be installed at the same time with the infrastructure such as water, electricity and gas.
In addition, the procedures relating to the official business broadband license will also be reduced. Opposition from the local level (such as environmental issues, partly because Brussels did not deploy 4G mobile broadband) must be dealt within six months or be automatically approved.

The Association President, Tom Ruhan pointed out: "We very much welcome this proposal aimed at reducing the fiber network deployment costs. In Europe, more than 70% of the investment of FTTH is shouldered by other operators, which greatly reduced the telecom operators Manufacturers’ burden. "
