Wicklow County Council Urged To Apply For Funding To Install WI-FI Hot Spots

An Irish MEP has urged Wicklow County Council to apply for a grant to fund the installation for upgrading of Wi-Fi in public spaces.

Under the scheme, successful local authorities receive EU Commission grants worth 15-thousand euro each to install wi-fi transmitters in public urban areas.

60 thousand euro in funding has been awarded to the Garden County since the scheme began.

The Bray and Greystones districts benefited from the scheme’s second allocation in 2019, while three previous vouchers were given for the Baltinglass, Arklow and Wicklow Municipal Districts.

Ireland South MEP, Billy Kelleher says the voucher may be used to purchase new equipment or upgrade old systems currently in place.
