Swedish 2021 broadband subsidy applications open until 09 August with SEK 1.6 bln available

Tuesday 18 May 2021 | 12:50 CET | News
Swedish communications regulator PTS is inviting applications for this year's allocation of almost SEK 1.60 billion in state subsidies for broadband by 09 August. For the purposes of applications, PTS has split the country into three regions, namely Norrland for the north, Svealand for central Sweden, and Gotaland for the south. Funding will be granted in proportion to the number of buildings that are not passed, and will be directed to sparsely populated places.
