The Basque Government, in conjunction with the three Provincial Councils of the region, launched a series of ultrafast broadband extension aids for private operators, with the objective of expanding the services in economic activity and rural areas where the deployment of these networks was not planned by other parties. To address the problem of unserved areas and the lack of commercial interest, the first governmental aid programme increased the network deployment in areas relatively close to urban areas or existing networks, with low intensity subsidy. Once the existing network infrastructure was extended, in the following aid programmes, the extension to further areas was addressed, raising the subsidy intensity. This approach has managed to attract the attention of the telecom operators.
