EU wifi fund is 'first step' to universal coverage

EU commission spokeswoman Nathalie Vandystadt told EUobserver a €120 million wifi investment fund "is really a first step, and if the demand is higher, we hope to increase this budget". An analysis by this website found creating free wifi in "every European village and every city", as commission president Juncker announced Wednesday, would be unfeasible with just €120 million. "Many cities and villages already offer free wifi," Vandystadt added.
