Bulgarian Municipalities to Receive 1.92 Mln Euro in Wifi4eu Vouchers

The European Commission said on Friday that it has decided to grant vouchers worth 1.92 million euro ($2.18 million) to 128 Bulgarian municipalities under its WiFi4EU initiative. Each of the selected municipalities will receive a 15,000 euro voucher to cover the costs of installing Wi-Fi equipment in public spaces within the municipality that are not already equipped with a free Wi-Fi hotspot, the European Commission said in a statement. The municipalities should install a functioning Wi-Fi hotspot within 18 months after being awarded the voucher.WiFi4EU-funded networks will be free of charge, free of advertising, and free of personal data harvesting. The European Commission selected a total of 2,800 municipalities from over 13,000 applications under its first WiFi4EU call. Three more WiFi4EU calls will be organised in the next two years. For all four calls, the Commission is making available a total of 120 million euro for up to 8,000 municipalities across the EU.
