The aim is to ensure that many groups are at the potential risk of exclusion due to lack of connectivity, said the company, which has responded to calls from several of Spain's Autonomous Communities, (Galicia, Asturias, Castilla-Leon, La Rioja, Valencia and Catalonia), municipalities, associations, foundations, care homes and individuals.
