European Parliament OKs Funding for Free EU-wide WiFi

Free WiFi for all is set to hit the EU in 2018 after the European Parliament approved to release 120 million euros in funding for the WiFi4EU project, aiming to provide free WiFi at some 6,000 cities across the Union.

With 582 votes against 98, the European Parliament said the scheme will offer WiFi access “free of charge and without discriminatory conditions”.

The WiFi4EU initiative will offer high-speed Internet access at public services such as libraries, hospitals, public administration offices as well as at outdoor spaces accessible to the general public.
