Broadband Coverage in Europe in 2011 - key results for Luxembourg

One of the European Union’s most ambitious targets is to make sure that all its citizens can get access to superfast broadband at home, if they choose, by 2020. A new study by broadband specialists Point Topic shows Luxembourg is now 75% towards achieving that aim.

Luxembourg enjoys 100% coverage of standard broadband and 99.6% coverage of HSPA so its basic broadband needs are well supplied,  NGA coverage is also well above average, fourth among the study countries at 75%.  However, the 15% of the population which lives in Luxembourg’s often rugged and forested rural areas have little or no access to NGA.

Luxembourg’s strength in NGA is based on having the sixth most extensive cable network in Europe, with 64% coverage, fully upgraded to Docsis 3, plus above average FTTP coverage of 23%.  However there is no VDSL coverage, no WiMAX networks were identified and LTE has yet to start.

As the rural profile shows, the NGA services cover the towns quite well but leave nothing over for the countryside.  The high DSL and HSPA coverage should at least mean that almost all rural homes can get a basic broadband service.

Luxembourg consists of just a single NUTS 3 area and its DSL network gives it 100% standard broadband coverage.  NGA coverage is only 75% because the country’s FTTP and Docsis 3 networks do not reach into rural areas.
