The European Union finances up to 14 million euro the project Ardèche Drôme Numérique (ADN) under the ERDF (programming period 2007 - 2013). The project, of a total of 123 million euro, aims to improve access to internet for areas sparsely populated and therefore less profitable for operators. Indeed, the inhabitants of these regions have virtually no access to internet, or at a higher cost than elsewhere.

The ADN project is helping to promote the creation and growth of businesses in the knowledge economy field and supports long-term job creation. Broadband also permits the introduction of new organisational approaches such as teleworking from home, which offers businesses and employees added flexibility and options.

The ADN project is finally making a significant contribution to territorial and social cohesion in the region, providing greater access for those living or working in isolated areas to new services, notably health, culture, education, training, security, public services and social networking.

The ADN project has helped has helped build 2 000 km of fibre optic cable infrastructure allowing 360 000 homes and 96 % of people in the Ardèche and Drôme départements to connect to broadband internet. It also helped 2000 enterprises and 212 areas of economic activities to connect to fibre optic cable infrastructure.

Behind this project is the ADN Joint Syndicate, made up of the Ardèche General Council and the Drôme General Council, with support from the Rhône-Alpes Region and the European Union.
