Wi-Fi, made in Europe

With the WiFi4EU program, the EU aims to promote free Wi-Fi connectivity in public spaces such as parks, squares, public building, libraries, and museums everywhere in Europe.

In concrete terms: Municipalities can now apply for a WiFi4EU voucher worth EUR 15,000.

 

As a LANCOM reseller, you benefit from making your municipal customers highly attractive offers for the promotion of professional public Wi-Fi hotspots.

Don’t delay—grab those market opportunities

The first two of four award rounds are behind us; rounds 3 and 4 follow in the second half of 2019 and in 2020. The WiFi4EU vouchers are valid for 18 months and can be redeemed for the equipment and installation.

 

The coming 2 – 3 years will see municipal projects being supported with funding of at least EUR 80 million. Take advantage of this investment opportunity!

 

Important notice: Municipalities that receive a voucher must award their projects to registered Wi-Fi installation companies. If your business is not yet registered, you can do this online using the WiFi4EU-Portal.

First come, first surfed!

Each city or municipality is entitled to just one WiFi4EU voucher. As a LANCOM partner, you are free to address any number of municipalities in your area.
