    [02] Govt actions to promote broadband services

    The Greek government has earmarked 450 million euros for a project to

    promote fast Internet connections in the country, Economy and Finance

    Minister George Alogoskoufis said on Monday.

    Inaugurating a free wireless Internet access show in Syntagma square, in

    central Athens, Alogoskoufis said the government aimed to bring citizens

    closer to fast Internet services by 2008 and noted the similar actions were

    scheduled to promote broadband services to 85 municipalities, universities

    and business programme agencies.

    Professor Vassilis Asimakopoulos, secretary-special at the Information

    Society agency, said the free Internet show would also strengthen the city's

    touristic profile. Asimakopoulos said a plan to promote broadband services

    by 2008 was in full swing.
