Many Danes fear smart city services may cause data misuse

Friday 11 March 2016 | 12:27 CET | News
Danish regional electricity and broadband provider NRGi said a survey it commissioned from Megafon found support for digital smart city services that make life more convenient, but that there is concern about abuse of personal information. It said 77 percent of respondents in the online survey carried out in September 2015 said more tax revenue should be invested in smart town services. Meanwhile 45 percent said they would be unwilling to supply the data to make such services possible.
