Spiegel verwendet BIIX als zentralen Vergleichskennwert für den Breitbandausbau

Düsseldorf/Berlin, 25. Juni 2013 Für den aktuellen Spiegel-Artikel "Zukunftsbremse langsames Internet: Die Schmalband-Republik"  findet der von MICUS und der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar entwickelte BIIX (Breitbandinvestitionsindex) als Basis für den Vergleich der Voraussetzungen für den Breitbandausbau Anwendung. Der Breitband-Investitionsindex BIIX wird als Produkt von Einwohnern und Hauptverteilern pro Quadratkilometer für Stadt- und Landkreise berechnet. Je mehr Einwohner und je mehr Hauptverteiler in einer Region stehen, desto günstiger und lukrativer ist die Aufrüstung auf hochbitratige Kommunikationsinfrastrukturen (mehr Kunden, mehr bestehende Infrastruktur = höhere Nachfrage und geringere Kosten).

Facebook Index shows social networking and digital gap in Germany

The Broadband Investment Index (BIIX) is the benchmark for the development of broadband in-ternet in Germany. Now the question comes up: which impact does broadband access have on social participation in new media? The answer is given by the Facebook Index (FBIX). The scientific indicator shows the digital gap between urban and rural areas and therefore between adequately and inadequately provided internet users in Germany. For the calculation of the index the number of Facebook users within a municipality is compared to the number of inhabitants.

The Broadband Investment Index (BIIX) for Germany

The structural preconditions for the development of broadband networks differ significantly between the regions of Germany. While cities and agglomerations have a good base to be served with broadband infrastructure by private telecommunication providers, rural areas with low population density lack far behind. This is shown by the Broadband Investment Index (BIIX) for Germany, which has now been published by the recently founded association "Verein Breitband-Investitionsindex (BIIX) e.V."

open-data

BIIX e.V. is dedicated to foster the development of the broadband market and thus to stimulate the economy. BIIX e.V. encourages a constructive dialogue between owners of broadband infrastructure, service providers, investors and the public sector.

With its current design the Broadband Investment Index (BIIX) visualizes the preconditions for the transformation towards a sustainable and fast internet infrastructure. The higher the calculated index value is, the higher the expected revenue of broadband networks and the lower the expected cost for broadband development can be assumed.
