Digital Hubs

Broadband Connection Points
Nearly 300 broadband connection points (BCPs) will be provided in Year 1 of the NBP, acting as hotspots providing free Wi-Fi in local communities supporting digital work hubs in every county. The provision of the fibre network will take place in conjunction with these BCPs.

BCPs will provide and facilitate:

  • access to digital services and enhance online participation
  • Broadband access to local businesses that may otherwise have to commute to access required broadband services or alternatively, relocate their business to remain solvent
  • A facility with access for members of the public, such as a library or a Local Authority property
  • A hot-desk facility, open during business hours or on demand (within business hours)
