[17 June 2024] The Ministery of Economic Affairs has presented its Actionplan Sustainable Digitalisation to the House of Representatives.

The plan underlines the importance of reduction the CO2-footprint for data infrastructure, as well as reduction of its energy consumption.
Also targeting ways to deal with the labor shortage to be able to execute such green plans is highlighted in this action plan.

These topics directly relate to the core of the Optolux® proposition, where the strong reduction of cable usage, combined with much better energy efficiency, provides clear means to address the relevant issues.
This very much strengthens our conviction that FiberUnlimited has the right data network solution for our future.
