The European Parliament today approved an EU scheme that will help fund the provision of free wifi in public places such as hospitals, libraries, parks, and train and bus stations. The aim of the initiative is to provide more than six thousand communities in the EU with free high-speed Wi-Fi by 2020. EU funding for the scheme will be based on a first come first served basis. The Fine Gael MEP Sean Kelly is urging public authorities and local communities back home to apply for the funding early on to ensure they can benefit from it.
