23 Apr 2009

Macedonia has adopted the ‘National Strategy for the Development of the Next Generation of Broadband Internet’, together with an action plan for its implementation. The Ministry of Transport and Communications announced the plans which also sets out a series of initiatives aimed at resolving a number of key issues including: the formation of a single national register for electronic communications, the switch to next generation networks (NGNs) and the replacement of copper infrastructure with fibre-optics in order to meet future demand for bandwidth hungry services such as VoD and IPTV.
