MCTI wants internet access for all

15 Feb 2011

Romania’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCTI) says it has secured European Union funding worth EUR84 million (USD113 million) to provide internet access to unconnected areas of the country. Romania Business Insider quotes minister Valerian Vreme as saying that the MCTI is currently working on the technical details of the project, and that the funds will be used to develop a nationwide fibre-optic network. According to a study by Vodafone Romania, 10% of Romanians have no internet access, although other surveys put the figure between 20% and 25%.
