Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 14:25 CET | News
The German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) announced plans to appoint 35 "subsidy managers" to support and accelerate the roll out of broadband internet in every administrative district of the state and ensure NRW's municipalities are able to access broadband subsidies, reported TelTarif.de. These subsidy managers will be based out of five "Gigabit.NRW" business centres throughout the state and help improve and professionalize the work of NRW's 52 current broadband coordinators, they wrote.
