Abstract: Traditional (incumbent) network operators are mainly not in the position or willing to deploy a fibre-based broadband communication network financed by private capital to 100% and there will be areas where the roll-out of such networks will not be likely. There will be cases in which a network operator will seek support at different levels from a third party, e.g., by specific financing programmes or via Public–Private Partnership (PPP) projects to share the risk and to have partners to conduct the network roll-out. This paper is analysing conditions and solutions in cases where a public financing and support is needed to make such investments available and to ensure that the network roll-out will be realised.
