European regulators green-light free public Wi-Fi initiative

The European Parliament, together with the European Council and the European Union, agreed to push through with the WiFi4EU initiative, which would provision for free public Wi-Fi hotspots across Europe.

The agreement would cover 6,000 to 8,000 municipalities in all EU member states, and includes a €120 million to buy the equipment necessary to install public Wi-Fi, a May 29 news release said.

Funding sources would be concluded in the ongoing legislative discussions on the review of the current multiannual financial framework program; once the system is set up, each locality can apply for funding.
