Fiber-optic connections and WLAN infrastructure for public schools, planned hospitals, and city halls; application for funding

The Free State of Bavaria grants subsidies to establish fiber-optic connections and WLAN infrastructure for public schools, planned hospitals, and city halls.

Description

Purpose

The purpose of the funding is to connect public schools, city halls and planned hospitals eligible for funding under the Bavarian Hospital Act (BayKrG) to the Internet via gigabit-capable and continuous fiber-optic lines to the buildings (FTTB funding) and to equip planned hospitals eligible for funding under the BayKrG with technical equipment for wireless local radio networks, insofar as BayernWLAN can also be broadcast via these wireless local radio networks (WLAN funding).

Subject

The object of an FTTB subsidy is the initial establishment of a fiber-optic connection including a network termination unit.

The object of WLAN funding is the creation or expansion of a WLAN infrastructure, including the necessary cabling work in the building.

Beneficiaries

The recipients of the grants are the funding bodies of public schools as defined in Article 3 (1) of the Bavarian Education Act (BayEUG), the municipalities, administrative communities and districts in Bavaria, and the hospital operators of the hospitals included in the hospital plan of the Free State of Bavaria in accordance with Article 5 (2) of the Bavarian Hospital Act (BayKrG).

Eligible costs

Eligible costs are the necessary investment costs for the initial establishment of a fiber-optic connection, including the network termination unit, or the necessary investment costs for the creation or expansion of a WLAN infrastructure, including the necessary cabling work in the building. The capital expenditure for the establishment of WLAN infrastructure also includes the costs of a site inspection under the BayKOM framework agreement (Lot 2).

Type and amount

The grant is awarded as project funding by way of pro-rata financing as a non-repayable subsidy based on the eligible expenses.

The funding rate is 80% of the eligible expenditure. For regional authorities or associations of regional authorities as recipients of funding, which are predominantly to be assigned to the area with special need for action, the funding rate is 90%.

The maximum funding amount per public school (regardless of the number of sites) and per hospital site identified in the hospital plan is EUR 50,000 for FTTB funding and EUR 5,000 for WLAN funding (in future, only planned hospitals). If the initial installation of a fiber optic connection at a public school or a planned hospital requires civil engineering work over a length of more than 1,500 meters, the maximum subsidy amount is increased by EUR 10,000 to EUR 60,000. However, this increase in the maximum subsidy amount is not granted if more than one public school or more than one planned hospital have the same postal address.

For the connection of town halls with fiber optics: 20,000 euros per municipality/district that is not connected to the Bavarian Public Authorities Network via a KomBN. In the event that the municipality/district is already connected or makes a binding declaration to connect to the Bavarian Public Authorities Network within a period of three years from the date of approval, the maximum funding amount is increased to 50,000 euros.

Prerequisites

FTTB subsidy

FTTB funding is only granted if it is ensured that a continuous fiber-optic infrastructure is created all the way to the building.

However, FTTB subsidies are not granted

  • if a fiber optic connection already exists up to the building,
  • if the creation of a fiber-optic connection to the building is planned as part of an otherwise subsidized broadband expansion project, or
  • if the public school or planned hospital is located in an area for which a telecommunications company has announced fiber-optic expansion to the building without cost sharing for end customers as part of a market investigation in connection with another measure to promote broadband expansion.

If the investor fails to meet its self-imposed milestones in the context of an announced roll-out for its own account and the funding recipient has set a grace period once without success, FTTB funding can be claimed again.

WLAN funding

WLAN funding is only granted

  • if the recipient of the grant is entitled to call up the BayernWLAN from the BayKOM framework agreement (Lot 2),
  • a call-up of the BayernWLAN actually takes place and
  • BayernWLAN is made available for at least 24 months.

WLAN funding can also be granted under the above-mentioned conditions for the expansion of already existing WLAN networks. Subsequent funding of WLAN technology that has already been purchased and installed is not eligible.

Funding will not be provided for projects that were started with the documents or declarations before the granting authority received an application for funding. The start of the measure is the conclusion of a contract to establish a fiber optic connection or to carry out work aimed at creating or expanding a WLAN installation.
