Terneuzen joins provincial broadband subsidy plan

Friday 21 April 2017 | 13:13 CET | News

The Dutch municipality of Terneuzen has approved a subsidy of EUR 24,000 for expanding broadband access. In addition to a provincial subsidy of EUR 100, each new connection can get EUR 100 from the city. Premises unable to receive at least 30 Mbps with their current infrastructure are eligible for the subsidy. 

The city still needs to find an internet provider willing to deploy the subsidised connections and hopes to find a candidate by the autumn. A total 240 households are eligible. 

The province of Zeeland started the programme last year to support municipalities ad the city of Sluis has also signed up for the programme. Hulst is also considering joining.
