Dubrovnik signs up to free Wi-Fi internet access from European Union

By  Mar 23, 2018

The European Union project to build free Wi-Fi internet access all over Europe has been accepted with open arms by Croatia. Two days ago the EU initiative was opened and since opening Croatia is ranked sixth among thirty countries in terms of registrations from boroughs and cities.

The WiFi4EU programme offers vouchers worth €15,000 for municipalities to set up Wi-Fi hotspots in public spaces, including libraries, museums, public parks, squares. As stated by President Jean-Claude Juncker, the WiFi4EU initiative aims at connecting "every European village and every city with free wireless internet access around the main centres of public life by 2020."

Almost 15 percent of the registrations from local government in Croatia have come from the Dubrovnik – Neretva County, according to reports in the local media. "I'm glad to see that Croatia has responded so well to this project because we have the most registered municipalities in comparison to the number of inhabitants," commented Croatian MEP Tonino Picula.
