The MIPA brings very high broadband to Albania

Thu 12 Apr 2018


In 2016, the Albanian State Ministry of Innovation and Public Administration (MIPA) launched a program to bring high speed broadband in the whole country with at least 100 Mbps for 50% of households and at least 30 Mbps for all Albanians. MIPA selected Sofrecom for a 3-month strategic study.


Sofrecom helped MIPA to quantitatively evaluate the feasibility of Broadband development in Albania, as well as the required investment and the different public-private financing mechanisms. Sofrecom’s deliverables included for example a benchmark of relevant best practices in five countries, an assessment of current broadband services and ICT coverage in Albania, several access and backbone architecture scenarios, CapEx and OpEx modeling.


MIPA now has a clear vision of the next steps, a roadmap to follow, and a preferred scenario to develop broadband in accordance with its cost effectiveness ratio.
