The loan has been provided to finance Danish TDC NET’s fibre rollout investments in 2022–2024. The company’s investments will result in future-proofing the digital infrastructure.
Fibre transports data and provides secure and stable connections for society. Given the rapidly increasing range of services and data traffic volumes, the broadband infrastructure needs to keep pace with demand. Therefore, TDC NET focuses on the rollout of optic fibre and in the period 2022 – 2024 NIB will contribute to the financing.

Fulfilment of NIB's mandate

TDC NET has set a goal to roll out the fibre network to one million addresses by mid-twenties. By the end of 2021, the number of such households was approximately 0.5 million. The project forecasts the financing of the rollout of fibre networks in 2022–2024 will have a rollout capacity of approximately 100 thousand households a year.
