The Office of Electronic Communications has released a telecommunications map, which is very important for the development of broadband infrastructure in Poland. The map is the result of the telecommunications infrastructure stock-taking carried out by the Office of Electronic Communications.
The map of telecommunications infrastructure prepared by the Office of Electronic Communications and the National Institute of Telecommunications will certainly bring benefits both to telecommunications companies and local governments. The map will be extremely helpful when planning investment in the development of broadband infrastructure. The tool was created as a result of the telecommunications infrastructure stock-taking conducted by UKE in 2012.
Anyone who intends to pursue investments in the implementation of broadband roll-out projects can today make the most of information on the existing telecommunications infrastructure. Simply visit the Broadband Poland portal to get access to information about the route of optical fibre, cable and radio networks as well as backbone, distribution and access nodes.
A valuable advantage of the map is that it allows to find information on both the coverage of telecommunications infrastructure (commercial) and public telecommunications networks in one place. Importantly, the data were aggregated in a manner which maintains anonymity and prevents the identification of the operators' infrastructure, which ensures the privacy of businesses and local governments.
- The map of existing telecommunications infrastructure and public telecommunications networks will significantly facilitate investment planning for Internet operators and local governments. It will also be a useful tool for both the Ministry of Administration and Digitisation, and the Ministry of Regional Development which coordinate EU broadband infrastructure roll-out projects implemented in Poland. The information will also be used by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, which plans to invest in of broadband networks roll-out in localities whose population does not exceed 5,000 people, and has allocated EUR 59 million for this purpose - sums up the project the President of the Office of Electronic Communications Magdalena Gaj.
The map of telecommunications infrastructure was developed as part of EU-funded Information System for Broadband Infrastructure (SIIS) projects and the Broadband Poland portal.
