Longford Connected Communities (Broadband Connection Points)

Longford Connected Communities

Longford Connected Communities

Connected Communities is the national communications name for the Broadband Connection Points (or BCPs) initiative.

Broadband Connection Points (or BCPs) are public locations which have been selected to receive 150Mb high-speed broadband connectivity in the first year of the National Broadband Plan. A BCP, is a location where public WIFI will be provided.  People living in the general area shall then be able to make use of the broadband as they require. 8 locations were selected and approved in County Longford. The 8 Longford locations are made up of public buildings, community centres and sports clubs. All BCP's offer external access to high-speed broadband and some offer internal access. 7 primary schools will be connected but will not be providing public WIFI access.


Mullinalaghta Community Centre and Ballymore Shamrocks GAA Grounds were one of the first live BCPs in the state. Click here to view press release Connected Communities.

BCPs Map

How were the Broadband Connection Points selected (BCPs)?
  

The main criteria for selection of the BCP was that the BCP had to be located in the AMBER area of the National Broadband Plan and that the area where the BCP resides had to have no plans for commercial development to deliver high speed broadband. For that reason you will notice that the 8 Longford BCPs are located around rural areas. Basically if high speed broadband was available in the area from an operator, then it was not eligible to be a BCP
