Transport Ministry launches Internet project

THE SLOVAK Transport Ministry will launch a project in April to increase high-speed Internet use across the country by providing Sk240 million (€6.4 million) in subsidies to users.

Under the plan, called Internet for Education, the ministry will give new Internet users a subsidy of Sk6,016 (€160) per person over a two-year period. The money is to be distributed in monthly payments to high-speed Internet users, the SITA news agency wrote.

Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš explained at a press conference that the project aims to increase IT literacy and access to high-speed Internet among young people from 15 to 25 years of age.

The Transport Ministry subsidies will go to 5,000 applicants from each of Slovakia's eight regions, or a total of 40,000 new applicants across the country.
