EC approves EUR 50 mln voucher scheme for faster broadband services in Greece

Wednesday 9 January 2019 | 18:31 CET | News
The European Commission approved under EU State aid rules a voucher scheme to support Greece's take-up of broadband services with download speeds of at least 100 Mbps. The move will contribute to reducing the digital divide while limiting distortions of competition. The vouchers will support increased take-up by covering part of the set-up costs and of the monthly fee for a maximum of 24 months. Users will be able to activate the vouchers until 31 March 2020. The vouchers are meant to help Greece increase the number of consumers who use "Superfast broadband services."
