This good practice, Community Network Services Broadband, sought to bring broadband to the rural north-west of Ireland to provide direct service for customers - both consumers and businesses - and to encourage online training and learning.

The aim of the good practice is to implement a high speed broadband network, in mainly rural areas of the Irish North West crossborder area, to support the future economic and social development of communities and business.

Importantly, the project was also intended to demonstrate, as a pilot, the potential of wireless technology to make broadband a feasible offering in sparsely populated areas and consequently to reduce the ‘digital divide’ - the separation of society into those with broadband access to the internet (and the richness of services and opportunities available therein), and those without such access.
