The tender was for a feasibility study related to the OPIS third priority axis, the aim of which is to support activities intended to stimulate demand from households and private individuals for broadband technologies by improving regulatory tools.

Through indirect tools, the OPIS broadband axis wants to support sustainable development of broadband networks in market segments that are not attractive to commercial providers and thus increase the quality of the competitive environment in the telecoms market.

About €113.1 million has been allocated in total for the OPIS third priority axis “Broadband” for the years 2007-2013. The majority of funds, €96.2 million, comes from the EU. The remaining €16.9 million is covered by Slovakia’s national budget.
