EnergiMidt defends Ringkobing-Skjern broadband subsidy

Wednesday 16 March 2016 | 13:03 CET | News
EnergiMidt has answered criticism of unspecified provenance regarding subsidies for its RAH Fiberbredband joint venture. The local council for Ringkobing-Skjern has received DKK 70 million in state support but this subsidy is facing some disapproval, said RAH EnergiMidt director Jorn Zielke. He said this sum has not been handed to RAH EnergiMidt for it to use however it wants, but has been ear-marked for areas where it would not be commercially viable to supply broadband.
