1 Broadband Strategy «Can Greece recover from the economic crisis without broadband technology? Athens, April 6 th 2011

2 Tools SYZEFXIS FTTH Operational Programmes DC - RD MAN Rural

3 Broadband Strategy Greece moves rapidly to investments in Broadband Networks and Services Priorities: Broadband to ALL, focusing on less advantageous areas (Rural) Transition to NGNs (MAN & FTTH & Part of Rural) Increasing Broadband Coverage and Penetration (geographic & population) Value Added Broadband Services for the public sector (SYZEFXIS II) Mobility and use of New devices (WiFi in each Municipality) Specific implementation plans, aligned to Digital Agenda Europe 2020 all the above with Respect to the European Broadband guidelines

4 Towards Axes 4 Pieces of the same puzzle FTTH Project* MAN Rural SYZEFXIS II * Project initiated and handled by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport & Communication

5 FTTH Project A project initiated by Greece in 2008 (Ministry of Transport) targeting FTTH in Greek households (mainly Athens & Thessaloniki) Now: A tender is in the selection process for the techno economic advisor of the project (last phase). The project duration for the Advisor work is around 10months An open tender for the legal advisor will be announced soon

6 MAN Project Metropolitan Area Networks are already deployed in 72 cities of Greece A consultation of the tender for the Administrative Authorities has already finished. There was a strong interest from the Market Negotiations with the EU are on progress, in order to define the details of the project MANs are covering only public sector buildings but our purpose is to expand them to private sector as well MANs can be the cornerstone on which we can succeed FTTH in those 72 cities very soon

7 MAN + FTTH= strength in unity WHY are we thinking that? MAN project is not overlapping with the FFTH big project MAN are not including Athens & Thessaloniki (probable starting points of the FTTH project) Population in those cities (where MAN exist) is > We are ready to start! We promote Regional Development We need to utilize the 85ME investment of EC and Greece in Optical Networks in the best way (Viability for many years) We exploit the opportunity for Greece to move rapidly within 2012 in the FTTH concept

8 MAN + FTTH= strength in unity WHAT could we expect from such a project? 20% of ADSL connections in those 72 cities could switch over Fiber technology > home connected and > home passed ISPs will move forward to Added Value Services exploiting the opportunity of the above mentioned customer base Thousands of new Job positions within 2012 and 2013 for the deployment Many more within the next years GDP increase

9 MAN + FTTH= strength in unity HOW can we move on? First we walk, then we run: Establishing the MAN Administrative Authorities ASAP, in order to support SYZEFXIS II as well Open Access to all ISPs and Technological Neutrality Funding the demand stimulation within those 72 cities targeting > households for FTTH

10 Rural Broadband Why Rural BB? 6145 white residential departments 2919 white municipal departments Greek citizens have no internet access capabilities 40% could reach 30Mbps within 2 years from the contractual date Eliminate the digital gap Internet Access for anybody, anytime and anywhere The next 2-3 years, we are targeting into* 7,5% increase into the Broadband Population Coverage, thus 99% in total Accordingly, 20% increase into the Broadband Geographical Coverage * Depending on the available budget

11 SYZEFXIS II - Goal The Greek National Network for the Public Sector Participation of all Greek Agencies ( actors) More Broadband (and if possible optical) access More services, upgraded comparing to SYZEFXIS I New value added services emphasis on video collaboration mobility of users Maximization of aggregation of demand in telecom services

12 SYZEFXIS II Some figures Greek Government s present annual telecom expenses (voice & data) are >320 M (for the agencies) SYZEFXIS II can do the same with half!! (not to mention the added value and the increased security!)

13 Conclusions Clear Strategy for the next years All the pieces of the puzzle are coming together Investment in NGNs Significant Increase (%) of Population and Geographic Coverage Better services for all

14 Thank you
