Roscommon County Council - Free WiFi Initiative

Wifi4EU logoRCC logo

WiFi4EU is a European initiative that promotes free access to Wi-Fi connectivity for citizens in public spaces including parks, squares, libraries, town centres and museums in municipalities throughout Europe. The initiative provides EU funding to a Local Authority to install Wi-Fi equipment in public spaces that are not already equipped with a free Wi-Fi hotspot. The Wi-Fi service will be free of charge, free of advertising and free from commercial re-use of data.

 

Roscommon County Council were successful in receiving this EU funding to create up to 60 areas of free Wi-Fi within the county. The funding was split into 4 vouchers and Roscommon County Council are delighted to announce that Vouchers 1 & 2 have been completed under Phase 1 of the rollout and 28 Access Points are now live in the northern half of the County. Members of the public can access free Wi-Fi in the towns and villages shown on the map below.

Phase 2 installations are currently underway in the southern half of the county.
