RUNE procurement for RFI:
RUNE has declared, as the second formal step in the mapping process, regarding the territories of Republic Slovenia, the commercial interest to build optical access network connectivity for the households that can be reached at the following LINK.
Open, inclusive and future oriented Europe needs pervasive, very high speed connectivity for every citizen. Recent trends are showing an alarming intention of the industry to consider European rural areas as less important, deeming any solution is good enough for „those few elder farmers who live there“.
European rural areas are not only agriculture! Half of EU citizens live in rural areas!
This means half of those Europeans who pay taxes and have the right to vote!
We, the people who live in rural areas, demand proper, future-oriented fibre broadband connectivity!
We do not accept any second-choice solution as good-enough, like wireless or similar!
To those who argue that it cannot be done we answer: „If you don‘t know how to do it, this doesn‘t mean it cannot be done. We will do it by ourselves!“.
