Spain awards EUR 140 mln to 125 rural fibre projects

Monday 18 November 2019 | 10:23 CET | News
Spain's ministry of economy and business has approved the award of EUR 140.15 million in grants to expand fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks to rural areas. The funds are part of the "Plan 300x100" project launched in March 2018 to bring fibre-optic broadband access to all localities and 95 percent of the population by 2021 in a total investment of EUR 525 million. At the time Spain's FTTH network covered 76 percent of the country's population but the government said funds would be freed up under the Broadband Expansion Programme (PEBA) to cover all remaining underserved areas.
