Accessible and transparent broadband mapping can help encourage investment in Europe's broadband networks, it has been claimed.

Point Topic said that by producing coverage and speed maps, analysts can demonstrate broadband disparities to governments and regulators and show where investment funds are best spent. 

Oliver Johnson, Chief Executive at the company, said that in barely more than a decade, broadband has spread across the world with ever increasing speeds, and now boasts well over half a billion fixed subscribers.

"This is a powerful demonstration of its capabilities, however there is much more to be done in order to ensure everybody has access to high quality broadband services," he stated.

Mr Johnson claimed that mapping is "key" to delivering this, and ensuring more people gain access to the benefits of high-speed broadband.

He said Europe needs to follow the example of the US where mapping is concerned, with hundreds of millions of dollars having been spent in this area across the Atlantic.
