Member States to develop national broadband plans

Indicator Status Evidence
Do you have a National Broadband Plan which specifies a set of measurable broadband targets or will you have such a plan in place before 31st December 2012? Yes The target is to have 100Mbit/s for all by 2020 and it is referred to in e.g.: bredbaandskortlaegning-2011: http://www.erhvervsstyrelsen.dk/file/225279/bredbaandskortlaegning-2011.pdf and http://www.evm.dk/~/media/oem/pdf/2012/pressemeddelelser-2012/30-05-12-redegorelse-om-danmarks-digitale-vaekst-2012-final.ashx
Does the Plan meet the European Commission's Digital Agenda for Europe target for 100% broadband coverage by 2013? Yes The coverage was in 2011 at 100% (rounded up from 99,9%), with 96% having access to minimum 10 Mbit/s, 80% to 30 Mbit/s, 74% to 50 Mbit/s, 38% 100 Mbit/s as stated in: http://www.erhvervsstyrelsen.dk/file/225279/bredbaandskortlaegning-2011.pdf
Does the Plan meet the European Commission's Digital Agenda for Europe target for 100% coverage over 30Mbps by 2020? Yes Referred to in e.g.: bredbaandskortlaegning-2011: http://www.erhvervsstyrelsen.dk/file/225279/bredbaandskortlaegning-2011.pdf The target is to have 100Mbit/s for all by 2020.
Does the Plan meet the European Commission's Digital Agenda for Europe target for 50% of households to have subscriptions over 100 Mbps by 2020? No The Danish target of 100Mbit/s for all by 2020 does not explicitly include a target for actual take-up, but the national broadband plan does aim to stimulate demand for high speed services.
Have supportive measures been introduced to support the achievement of National Broadband Plan targets? Yes In 2013 the Danish Government will present a business-oriented strategy for digital growth. The initial work leading to the strategy has been presented in the government's Digital Growth Policy Report: http://www.evm.dk/~/media/oem/pdf/2012/pressemeddelelser-2012/30-05-12-redegorelse-om-danmarks-digitale-vaekst-2012-final.ashx

Best Practice Case

The Danish Broadband targets for coverage are set higher than those of the EU.
