Practices of demand in converging infrastructures

Förderjahr 2022 / Stipendien Call #17 / Stipendien ID: 6403

Deploying telecommunications networks is a large-scale and resource-intense activity. For this reason, projections of demand are key for network operators when deciding where to deploy which types of telecommunications network. Frequently, this means that rural areas are left behind, as the cost of connecting less (densly) populated areas is significantly higher compared to deployment in urban areas. As a consequence, other actors may get involved to ensure that telecommunications networks are deployed in areas which operators would consider to be low-demand. In Burgenland, the federal government has developed a broadband strategy to increase access to optical fibre networks, and has tasked a utility provider, Energie Burgenland, with their deployment. I would therefore like to know: how are the broadband strategy of Burgenland and the deployment of optical fibre networks impacted by practices of demand?
