Funding for free Wi-Fi
A €15,000 grant will be given, from the EU, to 8,000 municipalities across Europe to provide Wi-Fi. Wifi4EU program (WiFi for EU) started this year (2018) with a budget of 120 million euros and will be completed in 2020.
The goal of the program is to further develop municipalities across Europe to ensure free WiFi connectivity for citizens and tourists in public places such as parks, squares, public buildings, libraries, health centers and museums.
Who can apply?
All municipalities/communities in Cyprus (and countries within EU) are eligible to participate. The program presents a great opportunity for the evolvement and modernization of municipalities throughout Cyprus, since the sum of €15,000 can virtually cover ALL equipment and installation costs for free Wi-Fi. The beneficiaries will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis, while ensuring that all Member States can benefit from a minimum amount of vouchers
