EU to spend €120m to extend free Wifi across Union

The EU has announced it will spend €120 million to extend Wifi across 6,000 to 8,000 municipalities, bringing Wifi to “every European village and every city” with free Wifi by 2020.

 

The scheme, dubbed WiFi4EU, is described by the European Commission as having the aim to “increase accessibility to high-performance mobile internet, and to raise awareness of the benefits of such connectivity.”

 

The action falls under the framework of the digital single market and the desire to make customers’ experience across the EU the same.
