4GBB project results will make it possible to provide a large number of European citizens with an easier and cheaper higher bandwidth broadband access. This will promote the creation of new services and products, and new promising business will emerge, from which SMEs will benefit due to their adaptability and ability to quickly exploit the capacity.
The early development of Ultimate DSL technologies and the conception of new standards would give European industrial companies a clear advantage in the broadband area. Also, a timely large-scale deployment, enabled by a reliable low-cost low-maintenance solution, would make Europe the leading market for the development and deployment of new services. This could lead to a new era of communication-driven economical growth, based on an ecologically sustainable development where on-line meetings are substituting personal appearance and polluting transportation of people.
