The connection points are part of the rollout stages of the National Broadband Plan targeting areas traditionally not serviced by internet providers.

The Chief executive of Longford County Council is hopeful that rural life will be transformed by the development of new community based broadband connection points.

The BCPs are being opened as part of the 'connected communities' scheme which is also being rolled out in other counties across the country.

It's hoped the internal and external internet access being offered will fill the gap while t rural areas are waiting to be connected by the national broadband plan.
