The German state of Hesse has agreed to launch a EUR 50 million subsidy programme to improve mobile network coverage in rural areas across the state, reported Heise Online. Up to 300 new mobile masts should be constructed via funds available from 2020 to 2024 to ensure there are no more gaps on the "mobile communications landscape" in Hesse, said lawmakers from the state parliament. Negotiations with mobile network operators over the subsidy programme are already taking place, said Heise.
