BCO in the EU

What is a Broadband Competence Office? What do they do and why are they needed? Jan Dröge, Director of the BCOs Support Facility, talks about the Europe-wide network of BCOs, what they do for their countries and regions, and how the BCOs Support Facility works with them to facilitate access to EU funding in order to achieve the network’s objective of universal coverage for all European citizens, particularly in rural and remote areas.

The Broadband Competence Offices Support Facility (BCO-SF) is a European Commission funded project aiming to contribute to the implementation of the Digital Single Market targets on broadband roll-out. It will provide information and guidance to national and regional stakeholders in charge of broadband deployment. It also aims to promote the setting-up of new BCOs.
