Broadband providers can use a variety of technologies to deliver super-fast internet services to European citizens, it has been claimed.

Oliver Johnson, Chief Executive Officer at Point Topic, explained that while fixed super-fast broadband is "the most straightforward way" of delivering high speed internet services, it is by no means the only way.

He claimed that, as technology advances, satellite broadband can play an important role in ensuring homes and businesses have access to digital services.

Other wireless broadband solutions can also make a significant contribution to internet coverage, Mr Johnson said.

Given the extent of the challenge faced by broadband providers in filling-in Europe's not-spots, a variety of solutions are needed, he added.

Mr Johnson claimed that a combination of fibre, satellite and wireless broadband will be required to meet "even the most basic objectives".

The European Commission wants half of all EU citizens to have access to 100Mb broadband speeds by the end of the decade.
