Spain's Ministry of Energy, Tourism and the Digital Agenda has launched the first call for public funds to roll out fibre-optic broadband in digital divide areas as part of its "Plan 300x100" project to connect all Spanish localities and 95 percent of the population by 2021. The government said it will provide EUR 150 million in state aid this year, co-financed by the EU's regional development programme Feder, to bring 300Mbps fibre to underserved communities. Operators have until 16 May to apply for the subsidies.
