WHAT IS WIFI4EU ?
WiFi4EU is an initiative to create thousands of Wi-Fi networks in municipalities across the EU. With WiFi4EU, a free high quality internet connection is available in public places for citizens and visitors. EU has allocated EUR 120 million for 2018-2020. Each municipality can apply for a voucher of EUR 15,000 for the purchase of equipment and installation of the Wi-Fi network. The municipality undertakes to maintain a free and high quality WiFi4EU service for at least three years. The voucher can also be a part-financing of a larger and more expensive project. Municipalities must finish the WiFi4EU sponsored project within 18 months from the grant. The application is made through a simple registration at the WiFi4EU portal.
