You are currently viewing Trench warfare in the region – now the sparks are flying in the fiber optic dispute

“Postenschacher and unclear finances” criticizes Zwettl’s SPÖ district chairman Herbert Kraus on one of the largest fiber optic projects in Lower Austria. However, no one denies that the flagship project is creating urgently needed infrastructure in ten Waldviertel communities. ÖVP Mayor Christian Laister sees things differently.

Ten municipalities in the Waldviertel district of Zwettl – nine led by ÖVP mayors and the Bärnkopf municipality in SPÖ hands – will start one of the largest fiber optic projects in the country next year. For 15,000 residents, more than 800 kilometers of Internet cable will be laid in challenging terrain, at an estimated cost of almost 70 million euros. It is the most challenging infrastructure project in the region for decades, emphasized Christian Laister, chairman of the operator association and ÖVP city manager of Groß Gerungs. SPÖ district chairman Herbert Kraus does not want to question that at all. But: “Although the municipalities are founding a company, they still do not know what fixed costs will occur, who the two managing directors are and how the profit will be used,” says Kraus, who is also a municipal councilor in Arbesbach the communities like it, the society has been founded and four representatives from each community are on board,” counters Laister. You have already found top powers. What you should do with the profit in 20 years, you do not want to tell the future managers today. Because how things will be then and what you will need cannot be said from today’s perspective.
