EU-wide programmes provide a valuable platform to support cooperation between economic, social and environmental key players in seven Alpine countries, be they public authorities, companies or decision-making shareholders.

Satellite communication

Satellite connections can be used to cover large, very sparsely populated areas. They do not need to use the regional backbone and the area networks, but require the purchase of end-user equipment. The Digital Agenda for Europe calls for all citizens to have access to broadband internet. Satellite broadband is available to provide 100% coverage in every member state.
