Bulgaria’s FTTP Coverage Remains Low – European Commission

Bulgaria increased its fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) coverage to 7.3% in 2012 from 5.6% a year earlier but it still remains modest compared to the 12.3% average for the EU, the European Commission (EC) said in a report.
The country’s WiMAX coverage grew by 4.2 percentage points to 21.1%, 11.9% of which in rural areas. By comparison, the average for the EU was 17.2%, the EC’s 2012 Broadband Coverage in Europe report showed.
“Overall broadband growth progressed slowly in 2012", the report said further.  Apart from WiMAX, the coverage by the other broadband technologies in the country grew by less than two percentage points.  
Earlier this year the EC urged Bulgaria to improve its broadband take-up. In 2012 the standard fixed broadband covered some 89.6% of the country compared with a EU average of  95.5%.
