    The project concerns the first phase of a fibre-based broadband access network in the North Western part of Germany. The network will be operated on an open access basis.


    In the first phase of the rollout, a significant amount of households is intended to obtain access to ultra-high speed broadband services (> 100 Mbps). The entire rollout programme aims at connecting one million households over a period of 10 years.

    EUR 115 million

    Total cost (Approximate amount)

    EUR 234 million

    Environmental aspects

    Investments in fixed telecommunications projects (mainly civil works for urban underground copper/fibre roll-out) do not fall under Annex I and II of Directive 2011/92/EC as amended. The related works have typically limited residual environmental effects as they are mainly carried out in urban areas alongside roads.


    Procurement is expected to be in line with EIB guidelines for private sector projects. The Bank's services will verify details during the project's due diligence.
