Broadband Connection Points
These locations will provide free WIFI hot spots to the public and have the potential to offer other services to their community, such as remote working spaces or locations for skills training.
Galway County has 7 BCPs at present.
The sites for the BCPs were chosen based on their geographical locations, and are all in areas where no high-speed broadband service currently exists.
High-speed connectivity will be brought to these locations and maintained in place until the NBI roll out of high speed fibre service reaches the BCP.
The use of this connectivity will be free to the public.
This scheme is being co-funded by Galway County Council and the Department of Community and Rural Development.
