On 30 October, Europacable, the Association of Europe’s leading wire and cable producers, spoke at the European Broadband Competence Offices (BCO) Network Training Session in Vienna.

On behalf of Europacable, Mr. Antoni Bosch, Prysmian’s VP for Telecom Solutions, stressed:

“Europe is lagging behind in fiber roll-out. The Continent needs investments in fiber deep networks which are vital for our economy and society to be competitive in the digital 21st century. This is why cooperation is paramount. The industry is ready to work together with national and local authorities and institutions to ensure a timely fiber roll-out.

This said, only high-quality cables will contribute to making Europe’s Gigabit Society a reality. Thus, let’s do it right, together!”

The Training Session hosted by the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology saw the participation of over 30 representatives of national and regional authorities supporting broadband deployment across the EU.

Europacable and the BCO Network have established a fruitful cooperation over the last years which has resulted, among others, in a series of guided tours of Europacable Member facilities to provide national and regional authorities with a first-hand insight into the production of high-quality fibers and optical fiber cables.
