EU supports development of broadband infrastructure in Montenegro

Montenegro

The European Union is supporting the development of broadband infrastructure in Montenegro through a €550,000 technical assistance project. This aims to improve the country’s coverage by improving infrastructure for fixed internet. The project began in July last year, with initial steps including an assessment of the existing situation and an investigation of telecom operator infrastructure plans for the next three years.

 

The results of the study were presented at the ‘Deployment of Next Generation Networks in Montenegro’ workshop held in Podgorica on 29 September. The purpose of the workshop was to inform stakeholders including as telecom operators, municipalities, and utility companies, and gather views and input in order to enable the effective deployment of Next Generation Networks in the coming years.

 

The project is funded by the European Union through the Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF), in cooperation with the European Investment Bank. The lead international financing institution and potential lender for the implementation of the project is the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
