The European Local Fibre Alliance (ELFA) share the European Commission’s ambition to bring gigabit connectivity to all European citizens and businesses by 2030. ELFA supports initiatives that aim to reduce the costs of rolling out ubiquitous fibre networks and to encourage faster rollout. However, ELFA is concerned that the Commission’s Gigabit Infrastructure Act Proposal will not speed up the rollout of fibre networks in the EU. We are also concerned that the proposed Regulation will disincentivize network investments due to the risk of anti-competitive overbuild, especially in rural areas lacking in gigabit connectivity.
