Advisory Board

The Advisory Board of the German Broadband Association (Bundesverband Breitbandkommunikation e.V. / BREKO) is an eleven-member body that offers the Board and the three working groups (Working Group on Regulation, Working Group on Fibre, Innovations & Services, Working Group on Technology) comprehensive advice on strategic issues of telecommunications regulation, ICT technology, fibre business models and political issues. The association benefits from the many years of experience that the eleven advisory board members bring with them as experts in the ICT industry. To ensure that the BREKO Advisory Board can act independently, it is composed exclusively of honorary members who do not belong to any company represented in BREKO. They are appointed for two years.
