In this paper, we analyse the specific national broadband plans which have been developed by some European governments to foster the deployment of next generation access networks, namely in France, Italy, and Portugal. In particular, we discuss the strategies adopted to achieve wide fibre coverage and encourage coinvestment between competing operators. Finally, we highlight the similarities and differences between the strategies followed in these three countries.
