Alsace is planning for its own fiber access network after the recent approval of the Master Plan of Territorial Digital Planning by the competent public authorities. The plan considers a 407 million euros investment up to 2030 to supply fiber connections to residents and businesses in the area. The plan aims at a network that covers more than half of the population. The cost per connection is estimated at 1,000 euros. I’m not sure if the project qualifies for EU subsidy (it probably does not) as it is and I am genuinely interested in see how these plans will materialize.
