Abstract

The paper aims at highlighting some of the factors that impact on the take-up of broadband technologies in two Member States of the European Union (EU): Italy and the Netherlands. To address this aim, the analysis stems from the examination of governance aspects, which seem to be crucial in facilitating the adoption of broadband technologies. After an updated recognition of most recent EU legal frameworks, a focus is dedicated to the Italian and Dutch ones. Differences among them reflect diverse attitudes on the supply and demand side in embedding forward-looking technologies and standards. The investigation of specific cases helps identifying challenges and criticalities in both broadband markets.
