Information and communication technologies are an important driver of economic growth. It is in the interest of the European Union and national decision-makers to form a knowledge and information society. With the aim of creating a holistic European information society, actions must be taken against the "digital gap", the gap between urban and rural areas in particular. In order to master the fundamental technological changes, forward-looking political actions are required. It calls for political convergence and a willingness to adapt to the regulatory environment so that it is feasible to meet the changing needs of the digital economy. The main purpose of this thesis is to support municipalities, planning offices and companies that build empty pipework in their actions to form a suitable information society. Since there are a variety of empty pipe systems and components on the market, the choices are not easy. This paper identifies the most commonly used solutions with an additional goal to achieve a certain degree of standardization, in order to facilitate cooperation between infrastructure owners and network operators. The structure of this paper follows, in addition to the legal and political aspects, its attempts to cover the actual status of the broadband supply on a worldwide and European level, contains clarification of important technology standards in this industry, leads to the most commonly used solutions of the various installation methods in the trench and trenchless sector in order to ensure an efficient and cost-effective installation in rural areas. At the end of this paper, a profound planning guideline was drawn up, with the aim to support already existing and potential infrastructure architects. This planning guideline has the potential to prevent the people responsible from numerous planning errors, which will result in a decrease of the overall project costs and thereby increase the chances of future project realizations even in less populated areas.
