Spain To Spend €250 M To Extend Ultrafast Broadband To The Whole Country

The new Universalisation of Digital Infrastructures for Cohesion Programme (UNICO) is the framework for measures and investments that will guarantee ultrafast broadband connection throughout the country, covering 100% of the population by 2025. The first call launched by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation is aimed at telecommunications operators whose objective is the deployment of very high speed broadband infrastructures. They will be capable of providing services at speeds of at least 300 Mbps, scalable to 1 Gbps.

This programme will channel one of the main investments of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan in the area of digital connectivity. According to the Ministry, an investment of 4 billion euros is planned to extend connectivity, accelerate the deployment of 5G networks and boost the cybersecurity ecosystem.
