Poland enters gigabit society

Poland enters gigabit society

“Poland enters gigabit society” is one of the five winners of the European Broadband Awards 2018.

This project covers the whole Poland, especially remote areas and those who do not have broadband at all. As a result, the schools in remote areas are being connected to the high-speed telecommunication services. This provides new opportunities for work, communication, education and culture for citizens living in remote regions. It is an outstanding example of how EU funds can make a real difference to the lives of citizens.

More than 11,000 schools and over 1,7 million households are being connected. The project provides new opportunities for work, communication, education and culture for citizens living in remote regions.

Territorial cohesion in rural and remote areas

This project covers the entire Polish territory, including white spots of broadband coverage. The project’s main aim is focused on territorial cohesion in rural and remote areas. Digital Poland Project Centre organised calls for proposals and 83 projects were selected. As a result, telecommunication operators will connect all schools located in the projects’ areas (11,612) and more than 1,7 million households, which is more than 13% of all households and 50% of all white areas in Poland. Previously excluded areas, without any prior broadband internet access or poor services, will be provided with high-speed networks.

The project provides new opportunities for work, communication, education and culture for citizens living in remote regions. The fact that this project is part of a national e-education programme will also promote equal opportunities for all children in Poland and will allow a new quality and style of school education.

To fulfil the project’s targets, it is estimated that 99,004 km of fibre networks will be built in excluded areas, providing ways for further development. Operational Programme Digital Poland is a complex programme designed to improve socio-economic development in less developed areas. The national e-education network will also stimulate exploitation of networks built within the project.
