Delivering high speed broadband to every citizen and business in Ireland is the remit of the National Broadband Plan
(NBP). The Regional Development and Innovation Unit is tasked identifying local barriers to the provision of telecoms services and the use of digital technologies. The Unit co-ordinates a number of projects intended to improve access to digital services in rural, isolated and under-served communities. These projects include the National Hub Network, Broadband Connection Points (BCPs), WiFi4EU and the Digital Innovation Programme. The Unit, in partnership with the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications, co-ordinates the work of the Mobile Phone and Broadband Taskforce.
