Title

Improving the accessibility to Services of General Interest through new digital opportunities, especially 5G - Collection of good practises

5th Feb 2021

Services of General Interest SGI and digital accessibility are an important topic within the Macroregional strategy for the Alpine area EUSALP. Action Group 5, which is one of nine AG’s of EUSALP, is dealing with this topic. A Think Tank composed of several experts from all Alpine countries has been established to discuss these topics and give strategic orientation.

In 2020, the Think Tank carried out a Workshop on the topic of Improving the accessibility to Services of General Interest through new digital opportunities and has established the present compilation of some good practices. The good practices focus on technological solutions. Organizational innovations like e.g. integrated service delivery models are not tackled in this report. The collection of good practices is intended as an inspiration for policy makers and key stakeholders in the Alpine area and as a very practical exchange of experiences. With the good practices collection, the members of the Think Tank want to contribute to the improvement of the accessibility to Services in the whole alpine territory. The collected cases focus on implementation. They do not tackle the legal framework, as this is varying from country to country.

5G is the new standard for mobile data transfer. 5G constitutes a quantum leap not only as regards the transfer rate, but also reaction times (latency). The latency is reduced by about 10 times in comparison to 4G. 5G therefore offers new potentials also for the delivery of Services of General Interest. This good practice collection focusses therefore mainly on 5G, but contains also some interesting other examples with other technologies.
