“Poland enters gigabit society” is one of the five winners of the European Broadband Awards 2018. This project covers the whole Poland, especially remote areas and those who do not have broadband at all. As a result, the schools in remote areas are being connected to the high-speed telecommunication services. This provides new opportunities for work, communication, education and culture for citizens living in remote regions. It is an outstanding example of how EU funds can make a real difference to the lives of citizens.
