DCC Wifi4EU Public Consultation

Back to News, Blogs & Events


Dublin City Council’s Smart City team invites public submissions for free WiFi in the Dublin City area.

Supported by the European Commission, the WiFi4EU initiative aims to advance free and open access to Wi-Fi for EU citizens in public spaces including squares, libraries, community centres, public parks, leisure centres, sports centres and art facilities.


With a total budget of €120,000 available under the scheme, Dublin City Council want you to help decide the best locations to roll-out this service.


The funds will support the installation of state-of-the-art Wi-Fi equipment in centres of community life that will benefit residents, visitors and the educational sector.




How to get involved?


Dublin City Council will consider submissions made by any person in relation to the WiFi4EU initiative by Wednesday 12th June 2019.


Responses will be used to identify possible locations to install an entirely new public Wi-Fi network or upgrade or extend an existing one.
