The European Union aims to ensure that the entire territory of the union was covered by the free Internet. € 42 million has already been allocated for this program. The entire territory of the EU will be covered by the WI-FI network, presumably in a year and a half. The connection will be automatic – you will need to register in any country in the network only once. In this regard, the Wifi4eu program was initiated in Cyprus.
Wifi4eu program is initiated, first of all, with an eye to sparsely populated and remote regions, which providers usually bypass. And in the near future, there will be a large-scale installation of towers, distributing the Internet.
In the first place, attention will be directed to places of a large gathering of people: parks, libraries, medical institutions, museums, universities, and schools. Free internet will also be available to public transport passengers in three dozen municipalities of Cyprus.
The European Union has decided to selectively support the regions of Cyprus in setting up WI-FI distribution points in public transport. A total of 3400 applicants participated in the program. Of these, 32 Cypriot municipalities were selected, each of which received € 15,000 for the project.
Free Internet in public transport in Cyprus will be available soon in:
