Poland may lose EUR 1.4bn of EU funds for broadband internet.

By bne IntelliNews August 8, 2012
Development of the broadband internet infrastructure in Poland is proceeding too slowly and there is a real threat that over EUR 1bn of the EU grants obtained for that purpose will not be fully used, according to a report by the Supreme Audit Office (NIK). There is no coordination between individual projects and responsible Ministries. The problem is also complex tender procedures as well as the local governments' fear of using the EU funds, NIK reported. Poland has been granted EUR 1.4bn for the creation of the broadband network for 2007-2013.
