Polish Vice-Minister for Digitisation Marek Zagorski has held a presentation in Parliament about governmental support for broadband infrastructure development, in response to an MP's interpellation, reported Telko.in. Of the total of PLN 4 billion reserved for broadband infrastructure projects, the amount of PLN 2.4 billion has been allocated. Besides this, the ministry is preparing to implement the European Commission's project WiFi4EU, under which municipalities can gain EU subsidies for free Wi-Fi hotspots. The first tender for that purpose may be organised at the turn of 2018/2019.
