EU Broadband Awards 2019 winner: Greece

Basic information
Date of placement

Sarantaporo is a small, remote village in the mountainous part of Thessaly, in central Greece. The area was underserved by telecommunication companies, as telecom operators had shown no interest in investing in broadband infrastructure. A small team of local young people joined forces in order to convince their fellow villagers, firstly, of the importance of internet access, and secondly, to design and deploy a Wireless Community Network. Addressing the problems of the local community, which were related to their isolation and digital exclusion, has been one of the main drives for this project’s success.
