Did You Know About WiFi4EU? – Part Two

The date of the second call of the WiFi4EU voucher initiative has been announced for 04 April 2019 at 13:00 CEST.

With a call budget of EUR 51 million, the Commission will distribute 3,400 vouchers across European municipalities on a first come, first served basis.

In order to be able to apply for the EUR 15,000 voucher, municipalities need to register on the WIFi4EU Portal before the call. The voucher will allow the winning municipality to set up free Wi-Fi networks in public spaces. The call will be open until 17:00 CEST on 05 April 2019.

The first WiFi4EU call, which took place in November 2018, was hugely successful, with over 13,000 applying municipalities from all across Europe and 2,800 vouchers awarded. In light of the interest in the initiative, for this call the maximum number of vouchers per participant State has been raised from 8% to 15% of the budget of the call.
