PEGO council has secured European Union funding for the installation of WiFi in public spaces.
Posting on its Facebook page, the council maintained it was its speed in applying for the €15,000 of EU assistance which was “key” to Pego being one of the only 148 municipalities in Spain to gain the financing.
The local authority must now decide in which locations to install the wireless communication points.
The EU awarded the subsidies on a first-come-first-served basis. Pego claims it was one of the first municipalities in Spain to get its application in for what was the third edition of the WiFi4EU programme.
