Three locations in Wicklow are among the first premises in the country to be connected under the National Broadband Plan.
Ballyeoog Community Hall, Wicklow GAA Centre of Excellence and Wicklow County Campus, Clermont are among the first 50 Broadband Connection Points, which were announced last week by Minister for Rural and Community Development Heather Humphreys and Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications Eamon Ryan.
The Broadband Connection Points are designed to provide communities with free high-speed internet access at publicly-accessible sites under the Government's new Connected Communities initiative. These connection points are located in buildings such as community centres and sports clubs.
Further installations are planned for next year, to bring the total number of connected public access points to 300 in 2021.
