English version video: http://www.onsnetnuenen.nl / Glas fibre network with services Best Practice Social and e-Inclusion Ons Net Nuenen is a unique cooperation between citizens of three villages: Nuenen, Gerwen and Nederwetten. The members of the Cooperative Ons Net (the citizens) own for 95% the infrastructure of the glass fibre network in their villages and it is ruled by democratic principles. 8.500 homes in Nuenen are connected to the fibre network (copper and coax). There is a 90% take up rate for fibre. Not only the citizens of the community but also all schools, churches, general practitioners, town halls Nuenen has 25.000 inhabitants and there is a concentration of elderly. One of the important aims are that elderly people can live longer independently in their own village and participate in the community. The fibre infrastructure has made it possible to offer 3 basic services and to develop all kinds of new and reliable services which contribute to these goals. Therefore it was important to stimulate not only the citizens in Nuenen in general, but especially also the elderly people to get connected to the fibre network and to use all kind of services. A lot of initiatives of E Health and E inclusion do not reach a bigger scale because the take up rate for the broadband stays to low. Elderly do not see the benefits of it and services are not meeting the needs of them because of a provision driven approach. To improve the take up rate for fibre, a demand driven approach was developed and used. A Real Life Home Lab was developed to improve an active participation of citizens, especially elderly. Ons Net Nuenen was selected as one of the Best Practices under PEOPLE subtheme Social & e-Inclusion More info on www.peopleproject.eu
