EU executive approves public support for broadband in Spain

The European Commission has approved 400 million euros to build very high-speed broadband networks here in Spain.

The Commission, which is in charge of making sure that EU governments do not distort market competition by subsidising businesses, said the scheme would run from 2020 to 2022.

Commission Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager said the measure will address the digital divide between urban and rural areas in Spain.
