The European Commission wants to set a new target for bringing at least 100 Mbps broadband to all the EU by 2025 and plans to call for more public funds to build faster networks, according to a leaked document obtained by EurActiv.com. The Commission is expected to publish the proposal on 21 September along with its proposals to overhaul the telecom regulatory framework. 

This is expected to include a proposal for giving national regulators more power to sanction "dominant operators that unjustifiably deviate from their declared intentions" to invest in networks. An estimated EUR 155 billion in investment is still needed to build fast internet networks and meet the Commission’s 2025 goal. It will propose more money for the Connecting Europe Facility to meet the 2025 speed target, along with "an appropriate mix of grants and other instruments".
