The Ministry of the Interior intends to give the municipalities 234 million euros in the coming year to expand faster Internet connections. Another 500 million euros are earmarked for binding financial commitments that will only be reflected in the budget in later years. "We continue to give full throttle and continue the funding policy at the highest level," said Minister Thomas Strobl (CDU), who is responsible for digitization in Baden-Württemberg, "Stuttgarter Nachrichten" and "Stuttgarter Zeitung" (Saturday).
Stuttgart - With a view to the exploratory talks between the SPD, the Greens and the FDP in the federal government, he said: "It will be very important that a future federal government continues to co-finance this area and make a double-digit billion amount available for the expansion of the high-speed Internet." The state has so far collected as much money from federal funding as Baden-Württemberg.
