Still time for councils to apply for EUR 15,000 Wi-Fi EU grant before Brexit is finalised

Councils still have the opportunity to benefit from the European Commission-sponsored WiFi4EU funding programme, which is designed to give local authorities the chance to access EU financing to build free public wireless internet hotspots. Value added distributor Nuvias(1) and networking leader Nokia are ready to help town and city councils move quickly to install and deploy Wi-Fi in the early stages of this programme, taking advantage of grants worth up to €15,000, well in advance of Brexit.

Local authorities can register on the WiFi4EU portal and apply for the grant or voucher. Applicants will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis, so time is of the essence. Nuvias and Nokia together have the solutions and expertise to move quickly and help councils get community Wi-Fi systems up and running.

“Despite uncertainty over BREXIT, the UK is still eligible to participate, but time is running out. Connectivity stakes are high in today’s digital age, so UK councils are strongly encouraged to participate by registering today”, recommends Rob Clark, Director, Technologies & Solutions Development at Nuvias. As of 25th April, 2018, some 74 UK municipalities had already registered.
