Best Practice Case

In 2012 European Commission Commission has published a Staff Working Document which summarises the current state of play in national broadband plans and fosters a mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge on good practices between countries by assembling examples of national implementation measures. In this document European Commission pointed out that in terms of demand for NGA, only five countries (Cyprus, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania and Portugal) which have fully subscribed to the DAE targets have integrated take-up targets into their broadband plans. This fact shows that Lithuania is already in the right way to implement targets set out in Digital Agenda. http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/newsroom/cf/item-detail-dae.cfm?item_id=7948
