EU digital drive: free Wi-Fi and new rules on content

The European Parliament has approved a project called Wifi4EU - free Wi-Fi for up to 8,000 communities - to help drive Europe towards a digital single market and expand public services. The Culture and Education Committee also gave the green light for tighter rules for online content, to ensure wider access to European films, music and other cultural productions. The updating of the Audiovisual Services Directive also calls for stronger measures to protect youth from harmful online content.
