Danish applications for state broadband subsidies almost double

Thursday 15 November 2018 | 13:42 CET | News
The Danish Energy Authority said the number of applicants for state broadband subsidies has almost doubled to 137 this year from 73 in 2017. They have applied for DKK 150 million for approximately 6,000 addresses, but only DKK 110 million is available. Lars Christian Lilleholt, the minister for energy, utility supply and the environment, said this goes to show that there are still some part of Denmark without access to fast internet service.
