The Polish Ministry of Digitalisation has announced that PLN 120 million in EU co-funding will be allocated for the project 'Internet for All'. The project will be carried out under the framework of the operational programme Digital Poland (POPC 1.1). 

Under the project, municipalities will be able to apply for funding for deployment of Wi-Fi hotspots of PLN 64,000 per city. The costs of installation will be covered, while support of the infrastructure will be funded by municipalities. Public Wi-Fi hotspots will become available in parks, libraries and in other locations.

The ministry estimates that around 19,000 hotspots will be launched, including at least ten hotspots of 30 Mbps capacity per municipality.

Applications for the funding can be submitted from 7 September this year until 30 June 2020.

Public Wi-Fi hotspots are currently available in 405 municipalities across the country.
