Quickly download movies, watch in 3D, as many things that need to have high speed broadband. This means that the flow must reach 100 megabits. A technological feat that could spread to the entire region of northern France by 2025.
9 years to go from 0 to 100
"Our ambition is to provide access to high speed broadband to every citizen", said it a year ago Patrick Kanner, the chairman of the joint union Nord-Pas-de-Calais digital. For now, still 30% of households in the region have access to less than two Mbps throughput, against still 14% over the entire metropolitan area. So we have to go from about 0 to 100 in nine years to meet the goals.
First, it will be necessary to install fiber optic wherever possible, even if it uses a satellite to the most remote places. Joint union has put their hands in the pocket. "We have a projected budget of € 500 million at least, shows Patrick Kanner, one can expect a compensation of 250 million euros and revenues of the private who will pay for the use of networks." The operational phase is expected to begin in 2015.
