The two new broadband connection points in Kilkenny, based at Crosspatrick Parish Hall and Tullahought Parish Hall are a key element of the Government's National Broadband Plan according to Fine Gael TD, John Paul Phelan.
Broadband Connection Points (BCPs) are among the first premises to be connected under the National Broadband Plan.
“They will provide communities in Kilkenny with free high-speed internet access at publicly accessible sites under the government's new Connected Communities initiative.
“The Covid-19 crisis has shown the value of digital technology in enabling workers, businesses and families in Kilkenny to stay connected. The BCPs are intended to bring people Broadband Plan, _ together through digital connectivity, and it's that togetherness that I want to emphasise.
“When people can work from their own communities, they can maintain the close connections that matter most: family, friends, community, and their homes. and can support local businesses, sports and community groups, all of which contributes to sustainable communities.”
