Danish eligible addresses for broadband subsidies fall by about 70,000 in 2018

Monday 25 June 2018 | 20:19 CET | News
The Danish Energy Agency said that application documents for the 2018 broadband subsidy round are now available from its website, with DKK 100 million available this year. It said there are 200,000 eligible addresses this year, down from approximately 270,000 in 2017. The drop is caused by the exclusion this time of urban addresses, and by the fact that more places now have better coverage already.
