The French ministry of the economy has launched the 'Haut Debit Pour Tous ('Broadband for All') certification, an initiative intended to help meet the government's Digital France 2012 objectives of making broadband services available to 100 percent of the population by 2012. Operators providing broadband service, including equipment, for a maximum of EUR 35 per month to all of the residents of a mainland France departement are entitled to use the label. To qualify, the service must deliver at least 512 kbps downloads and 96 kbps uploads, and can be capped at 2 GB of data transfer per month.The ministry has set up a website for the certification at www.hautdebitpourtous.telecom.gouv.fr
