About us

The availability of a high-speed Internet connection for citizens and organisations is of strategic importance not only for the development of large cities, but also municipalities, including rural regions. It is an important tool that allows an increase in employment and effectively reduces some of the disadvantages of housing in the municipality, such as poorer availability of services and state administration. We are here to help with the development of the high-speed Internet in your municipality.
