Friesland province approves broadband financing

Thursday 26 January 2017 | 15:19 CET | News
The provincial government in Friesland has approved a subsidy tender for a subordinated loan to support broadband roll-out in rural areas. Up to EUR 35 million in financing will be available, as part of efforts to cover around 25,000 addresses without fast broadband. Another EUR 12 million is available as a market-conform loan in areas already with cable, reports the Leeuwarder Courant. Around 2,500 homes in outlying areas will also benefit from EUR 5 million in financing.
