Online workshop on the BEREC Report to enable comparable national broadband coverage indicators throughout Europe

Event date: 12.10.2021

On 12 October 2021, 14:00 – 16:00 CET, BEREC is organising a public virtual workshop concerning the “BEREC Report to enable comparable national broadband coverage indicators throughout Europe”.

Taking into account stakeholders’ expertise in broadband coverage estimation and since they constitute the primary source of raw coverage data, the workshop aims to gather and discuss stakeholders’ views regarding the methodology underlying the European Commission Broadband Coverage Reports. The input received during the workshop will be considered for any upcoming recommendations that BEREC may elaborate.

After introductory words of the BEREC Chair and the Statistics & Indicators Working Group Co-chairs on current work and progress of BEREC’s work regarding broadband coverage indicators, the distinguished speakers will come together in the setting of a round-table to present their views. During the round-table, BEREC is looking for insights regarding the relevant indicators, their comparability and usefulness, the role of the operators and several methodological issues, including challenges in 5G mapping.

The round-table will be followed by a Q&A session and concluded by short statements of the distinguished speakers and the BEREC Statistics & Indicators Working Group Co-chairs.

The workshop will take place virtually via AVC. To participate in the event, interested stakeholders need to register. Connection details, together with the final agenda, will be sent to registered participants prior to the event.

The deadline to register is 8 October 2021 COB.
