High Speed Internet 'available In 75% Of EU Homes'High-speed broadband services of at least 30 Mbps were available to 75.9% of EU households by mid-2016, according to European Commission research.

The study, which was conducted by IHS Markit and Point Topic on behalf of the EC, found that in the 12 months to the end of June 2016 some 12.8 million new EU households gained access to high-speed broadband delivered via next-generation access (NGA) networks. Very-high-speed-DSL (VDSL) continued to be the “key driver” of next-generation coverage growth across the EU – increasing 7.1 percentage points and reaching 48.2% of EU homes. However, there was still found to be a significant gap between rural and national NGA coverage with only 39.2% of rural households across the EU having access to high-speed broadband services.

This stands in contrast to the near-ubiquity of 4G LTE networks, which expanded at a fast pace and covered 96% of EU households by the end of June 2016.

“Availability of 4G LTE services has become near-universal in many study countries,” said Alzbeta Fellenbaum, principal analyst at IHS Markit.

“In 11 countries, LTE coverage reached 99% of households and overall, LTE coverage now reaches similar levels to those of 3G HSPA networks.

This is a major improvement compared to just four years ago, when 4G LTE services were available to only 59.1% of EU homes.”

Polk wants to meet with broadband carriers following survey

County received 679 responses

COLUMBUS – A survey asking Polk County residents about their current broadband service received 679 responses with the survey closing on July 31.

The survey had been available since June 1.

The Polk County Board of Commissioners met Monday, Aug.

7 and heard from MIS director Bruce Yelton.

Yelton said the county’s responses included 644 online and 35 handwritten.

The county is in the process of analyzing the data so they can get the information out to broadband providers.

“Hopefully we can get some interest in expanding our coverage,” Yelton said.

County manager Marche Pittman asked how long it will take to get the data together.

Yelton said David Weisgerber, GISP should have it together in the next couple of weeks.

Pittman said he thinks it would be good to show broadband providers how important commissioners see broadband for the citizens of the county. He said he’d check with other counties to see how they’ve handled getting better service, but he thinks the county should hold a work session.

Commissioner vice chair Jake Johnson said he’d like to see broadband providers come and sit down for a roundtable session with commissioners.

Commissioner Ray Gasperson asked Yelton how the county advertised the survey.

Yelton said the county put word out on Facebook, the county’s website and had brochures throughout the county.

He said the people who are happy with their service likely didn’t fill out a survey.

Pittman said most of the poor service is out in the county. The towns of Columbus and Tryon and City of Saluda likely have decent service, Pittman said.

“So 600-something (surveys) isn’t a low number,” Pittman said.

Pittman said the data should be ready by the end of the month and suggested the county schedule a meeting with providers in September.

Commissioners set up a broadband committee last year and after several meetings the committee came up with questions to identify broadband needs of the county.

The survey asked, among other things, if residents had internet access and if they feel it is adequate.

The committee was established after residents expressed concerns about having little to no internet access, particularly in the unincorporated parts of the county.

Polk County is working with Keith Conover, technical assistance director for the western region of the N.C.

Department of Commerce, who will help coordinate a meeting with broadband providers in the area and provide a map of service in the county.
