Digital Policy Minister Nikos Pappas and Education Minister Kostas Gavroglou announced on Friday the provision of a monthly grant for internet access to 72,000 first year university students.

"It is a great pleasure to provide technology for everyone. We will offer free internet even to the remote islands," Pappas said adding that the subsidy (covering 80 pct of the cost of the internet programmes) will not burden the tax payers. The funds are provided by the Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission, Pappas explained.



On his part, the president of the Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission Panagiotis Tsanakas said that the subsidy will apply for 12 months. The aim is to have all students registered to the programme by October.
