The use of financial instruments in the ‘Information and Communication Technologies infrastructure’ sector

Description

To reach the European Union’s ambitious targets to deliver ultra-fast broadband access of at least 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) to all households and 5G mobile network connectivity to all urban areas by 2025, investments in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) infrastructure needs to be increased. These objectives require a total investment of EUR 155 billion from private and public sources until 2025.

This sectoral fiche considers the potential to use financial instruments to support this important sector. It forms part of the fi-compass Stocktaking study on financial instruments by sector.
