1 B r o a d b a n d internet access in rural areas of Slovakia WSIS Forum 2010

2 The M a p o f E u r o p e a n U n i o n Slovakia quick facts (2009): capital: Bratislava language: Slovak population: pop. density: 110,2 /km² area: km² GDP: $89.33 billion GDP per capita: $21,200 currency: Euro national symbol:

3 Level of rurality in Slovakia

4 Level of rurality and unemployement rate are related Registered unemployement rate in the districts of the Slovak Republic Source: Statistical office Registered unemployement rate at district level in %

5 Stagnant regions and rural settlement in Slovakia high rate of settlement disintegration in the SR villages up to inhabitants create 67 % of the overall number of villages in the SR the portion of the inhabitants in the rural settlements is 44,5 % stagnant regions in the SR are characteristic with rural settlement and small villages

6 Development of the rural settlement by means of broadband internet access Internet technologies represent a half of the productivity growth today therefore we can´t let our rural areas be deprived of the growth possibilities in the times of economic crisis

7 Countryside and broadband internet access in Slovakia geographical digital gap striking difference between the east and the west of the SR striking difference between municipal and rural areas inaccessibility of the broadband internet in a disintegrated settlement inaccessibility of the broadband internet is a disadvantage for the regions in a faster economic and social development

8 Support of the broadband internet access from the EU structural funds O One of the solutions how to help the stagnant regions and rural areas in Slovakia is the implementation of the Operational programme Informatisation of the society and particularly of the priority axis 3 „Increasing broadband accessibility“.

9 Operational programme informatisation of the society – broadband support the feasibility study surveys the broadband infrastructure in detail identifies the regions and the villages without the broadband access identifies the regions and the villages according to the particular technologies of the broadband access We processed feasibility study before starting to implement the operational programme

10 Operational programme informatisation of the society – broadband support 27 % of the villages has no possibility of the broadband access it concerns 1515 villages inhabited by people all of these villages have a rural character The study results proved the need of an eminent space differentiation of aid in the broadband support

11 „White spots“ at the level of NUTS II The central Slovakia NumberNumber White spots Self-administration region of Bratislava The western SlovakiaThe central SlovakiaThe eastern Slovakia

12 Regional division of the villages without the broadband NUTS II Number of villages which are white spots Number of inhabitants in the villages Self-admininstration region of Bratislava The western Slovakia The central Slovakia The eastern Slovakia Altogether

13 Villages with no broadband access are exclusively in a countryside Common local offices (CLO) and the referential villages with the marked villages with no broadband internet acces. Without a possibility of cable or radio connection through x DSL, CATV, FTTx or WiMax (WiFi yes) Reference territories (CLO) and their sites Villages with no internet access Villages without inclusion to CLO Updated Legend

14 Securing of the broadband accessibility for the particular categories of the geographical areas from the resources of the Operational programme informatisation of the society realizing interventions in the white spots are the highest priority interventions in the grey spots are recommended to be realized after a detailed survey Interventions are not recommended to be realized in the black spots

15 Character of the projects at building the broadband access demand-oriented projects national projects

16 Demand-oriented projects building of infrastructure of the access nets for the villages qualifying for white and grey spots and the internal infrastructure between the villages in the existent region building of a regional connector of the existent region to a higher communication layer is not financed from the programme resources within the demand-oriented projects

17 National projects connection building of microregions (clusters) to a higher communication layer (i.e. connection building of a reference village of a microregion to a higher communication layer) building of other regional nets (i.e. internal infrastructure) in the particular clusters is based on an assumption of an evoked commercial financing of these investments

18 National projects regional nets will be built in the reference villages by means of local optical cables (LOC) LOC lengths will be determined from the centres of the reference villages to the assigned DBTO from the side of telecommunication operators for the correspondent clusters the overall number of the proposed clusters is 612 number of villages in the particular clusters spans from one village to 17 villages

19 Examples of the justified activities for the broadband support Building of the regional broadband nets building and development of the optical access broadband nets building and development of the solid wireless access broadband nets Technological modification of appropriate existing metallic access nets

20 Rural settlement will be regarded in evaluative criteria at a project selection Projects will be implemented in economically stagnant regions Projects will be implemented in regions in which there is no possibility of the broadband access

21 Output indicators of the Operational programme informatisation of the society Number of newly connected households to the broadband internet / demand projects – Number of newly connected inhabitants to the broadband internet / demand projects – Number of inhabitants potentially accessible with the contribution of national projects – Number of inhabitants potentially accessible with the contribution of OPIS PO3 altogether –

22 Selected impacts of the realization of the Operational programme informatisation of the society on rural inhabitants Cost decrease for people (post-office, travel expenses and so on) Founding new business activities (tourism and so on) Remote work Education Improving medical care Making communication with banks, offices and so on faster
