Agreements on broadband projects and the Eastern Poland Broadband Network.
On 17 September, a meeting took place at the Office of Electronic Communications devoted to the establishment of an information system by Telekomunikacja Polska SA for the purposes of the Eastern Poland Broadband Network project as well as for broadband projects implemented within Regional Operational Programmes.
During the meeting agreements on the following points were made:
1. Methodology to identify the so called "white", "grey" and "black" areas (i.e. areas subject to intervention including both traditional broadband Internet access and NGA),
2. Principles for cooperation in submitting data on infrastructure owned by Telekomunikacja Polska SA,
3. Principles for coordination of planned TP investment in the context of qualification of certain areas for public aid for the implementation of broadband networks,
4. Principles for processing data made available by TP and further transfer of such data to public institutions involved in the notification procedure.
UKE invites the remaining telecommunications operators and local-government telecommunications investors to participate in the second stage of the above work as far as investment and investment plans of these parties are concerned.
The purpose of this initiative is to ensure compliance of public investment with commercial operators' planning not only at present, but also until the end of the financing period in order to avoid duplication of expenses and to increase their efficiency.
