What does the Federal Broadband Bureau do?
The Federal Broadband Bureau is assigned to inform and counsel the Government and law-makers, administration, citizens and the economic sector regarding the broadband roll-out. The Federal Broadband Bureau cross-links stakeholders, supports the creation of local demand, advises on best practice and points out synergies.
The challenges, that emerge in connection with the broadband roll-out, are as multi-facetted as the cities and regions in which the deployment is to be pushed. They include establishing technological concepts and strategies, questions on financing and co-funding through national and EU-programs, mobilising synergetic approaches with other infrastructures and their suppliers and also assistance to help exchanging experience and best practice examples. Furthermore, judicial framework and procedural requirements need to be followed during the broadband roll-out.
Besides the roll as a multiplier in disseminating know-how on all these aspects, the Federal Broadband Bureau sees itself as a moderator of targeted processes and as a catalyst for interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving. In matters of implementation, we closely co-operate with the competence centers of the federal states.
The contact centre: Information point for all questions around the broadband roll-out
By running an information and help desk – the contact centre –, the Federal Broadband Bureau provides a central information point for all enquiries regarding the aspects of the broadband roll-out from representatives of the federal states and municipalities, associations and private companies as well as interested citizens.

Co-funding and financing
Regarding questions related to the co-funding und financing of the broadband roll-out, the Federal Broadband Bureau is the first place to be adressed. With the central online portal, we provide an overview on funding opportunities in Germany and offer a platform for investments and investors.
Seminars, workshops, events: Additionally to the information provided on our website and in the publications on technologies and current instruments, it is possible – with the support of the German Parliament- to offer differentiated and elaborate seminars, workshops and events. Seminars and workshops from the Federal Broadband Bureau take place all across Germany and are customized to the different regional situations and backgrounds.
The events are organised in co-operation with the federal states and/or professional associations as well as municipalities and local authorities.
