Mapping broadband in Luxembourg

Broadband Coverage in Europe in 2012 - 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 Point Topic shows Luxembourg is now over 93% towards achieving that aim.

National coverage by broadband technology

Luxembourg was ahead of the European Union averages for all broadband coverage measures and was one of the top five highest ranking countries for all measures. For rural NGA coverage, it ranked top out of all the study countries.

Luxembourg’s strength in NGA coverage was based on having the most extensive VDSL network in the EU. Nearly 90% of households could access VDSL services at the end of 2012, with services available to more than 80% of rural households.

As well as VDSL, Luxembourg also ranks higher than most of the other study countries for its cable, DSL, HSPA and LTE coverage. LTE only launched in 2012, was already available to almost two thirds of the households in Luxembourg by the end of the year. There was no WiMAX network in Luxembourg at the end of 2012.

Regional coverage by broadband technology

Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in the study, both in terms of land area and population. In 2012 13% of its population was living in its often rugged and forested rural areas, but even these areas were well served by the extensive VDSL network and nearly all households can access basic broadband services.
