DEVLINS SEEKS FOR
COUNTY TO BE MADE AN
INTERNET WIRELESS ZONE
Dún Laoghaire based Councillor, Cormac Devlin has requested the County Council to investigate the possability of making Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council the first Council in Ireland to supply wireless throughout its administrative area
Question: Councillor Cormac Devlin
To ask the Manager to investigate the possability of making its adminstrative area a free "Internet Wireless Council.
“This authority is in the process of providing free wireless internet access at all our libraries and in the County Hall. This facility will allow free access to the internet to anyone (with the appropriate hardware) attending these sites and a limited distance beyond (50 metres) the sites.
Considerable doubt has now been raised as to whether EU regulations permit the provision of a county wide free wireless internet access by a public authority. The EU has questioned the legality of public finances being used to support projects normally provided by commercial enterprises. As there is no income source from a free service, these projects require financial support on an ongoing basis.
The Dublin City wireless proposal is now under review and I propose that we await the outcome of this review before considering any such similar scheme.
