Spanish trade union UGT (General Union of Workers) has called on the government to subsidise a social tariff allowing technologically-excluded parts of the population to access the internet at speeds of at least 20 Mbps for EUR 20 per month. The proposal is one of a series of measures suggested by UGT to tackle Spain's digital divide. In addition, UGT said telephone lines shouldn't be cut off for at least three months in the event of non-payment of bills.
