Ultrahigh bandwidth connectivity: Luxembourg in pole position

As part of the Digital Luxembourg initiative, the Media and Communication Department of Luxembourg’s Department of State and the Land Registry and Topography Department have come up with a new map of the ultra-high-bandwidth coverage of the country.

For the first time, the data gathered by the network operators provides an insight into local availability and the rate of ultra-high-bandwidth coverage in each municipality.

The data confirms the excellent position of the Grand-Duchy in terms of national connectivity: One notes for instance that in each municipality, be it located in an urban or rural environment, at least 4 in 5 households can have access to ultra-high-bandwidth (30Mbit/s and above). Better still, in 84 out of 105 municipalities, this rate reaches 95%.

In 27 municipalities, ultra-high-bandwidth connectivity at speeds of 1 Gbit/s is accessible to more than half of the households.

I salute the efforts that have been made by the various operators of electronic communications services to contribute towards meeting the coverage targets set by the national strategy for ultra-high-bandwidth networks, including in rural areas. I call upon the operators to join forces now to overcome the last major hurdle to the deployment of ultra-high-bandwidth internet access, to wit the adequate cabling of apartment buildings. Making ultra-high-bandwidth internet accessible to everyone is a key aim of Digital Luxembourg.
