The BREAD - co-ordination action, funded by the European Commission through the Framework 6 Programme (FP6) aims at developing a multi-disciplinary approach for the realization of the 'Broadband for All' concept within Europe, bringing together societal, economic, regulatory and technological disciplines and presenting information from regional "success stories" of actual deployment. The EU objective of achieving "Broadband for All" will not be reached by solely a 'technology push' strategy but will need this multi-disciplinary approach and sharing of views and knowledge to develop new strategies and good practice recommendations in the area of 'Broadband for All'. As a co-ordination action the project wants to unite all players active in the field of the end-to-end broadband provisioning for all. It performs a multi-technological analysis of the current and evolving situation, starting from the roadmap information generated by different projects and IST instruments which focus on specific technological domains. The BREAD consortium simultaneously studies the techno-economic, societal and regulatory aspects of this "Broadband for All" concept. It tries to identify the impact of the EU regulatory framework on the successful implementation of new broadband communication services.
