WiFi4EU with Meraki

Free Wi-Fi Across Europe

€120M of Free Wi-Fi

What is WiFi4EU?

The European Commission’s €120M scheme to support the installation of state-of-the-art WiFi equipment in the centres of community life across Europe e.g. parks, town squares, public buildings, libraries, health centres, or any other public spaces.

Who can apply?

Local public authorities (municipalities or group of municipalities) who:

  • would like to offer Wi-Fi in areas where a similar public or private offer does not yet exist
  • seek funding for equipment and installation and can provide free connection to their community for several years

How does it work?

Municipalities must register on the EU's WiFi4EU portal and submit an application. Selected municipalities will get a WiFi4EU voucher valued at €15,000. A registered WiFi4EU reseller or service provider must be chosen by the municipality to supply and install the Wi-Fi equipment and be paid using their voucher.

What's included with the voucher?

Saving Operational Costs

WiFi4EU vouchers will cover capital costs like wireless equipment and its installation, but, crucially, operating costs such as management of the wireless equipment will not be included in the voucher.

It is therefore very important to choose wireless equipment based on total cost of ownership, taking into account both capital expenditures and operational costs.

Meraki has carried out studies with existing customers to show Meraki customers save 90% in operating costs compared to more traditional technology.
