OFAA Welcomes Funding Initiative

"The funding helps to ensure that fiber optic expansion in Austria is promoted not only in urban areas, but also in rural regions. This is essential for our competitiveness and future viability," said the President of Open Fiber Austria.

The association commends Austria's previous investment of 750 million euros through the 'Broadband Austria 2030 Initiative,' recognizing the crucial role of fiber optic infrastructure. According to OFAA, ensuring that no one in Austria is left behind in the digital future is a fundamental obligation.

"It has been recognized that the expansion of fiber optic infrastructure is not just a goal, but also is an obligation to ensure that no one in Austria is excluded from the digital future," said OFAA. "Therefore, providing all parts of the country with fiber optic networks is fundamental to ensure economic development, education, healthcare and the quality of life of citizens."

According to the OFAA statement, the second funding call for the 2nd broadband billion, starting in the fall, is expected to play an important role in the expansion of the infrastructure.

OFAA calls for Nationwide fibre Expansion

From an economic perspective, OFAA stresses the necessity of absolute area coverage. OFAA said, failure to plan for comprehensive expansion from the outset could lead to delayed and significantly more expensive development. This applies from small rural communities to large cities - everywhere in Austria.

Founded in 2021, Open Fiber Austria is dedicated to enabling an open, comprehensive, and democratic fiber optic network throughout Austria. Open Fiber Austria is calling for fiber optic expansion that is comprehensive and reaches all parts of the country.
