About this event

Digital connectivity is and will continue to transform our lives. Broadband and mobile connectivity is now essential infrastructure needed for work, education, entertainment, shopping and increasingly to access many public and other services.

Despite accelerating plans for enhancing fibre optic broadband and mobile connectivity in rural Northern Ireland, some areas will remain as “not spots”, not commercially viable for connection. A number of projects are pioneering ways in which these rural “not spots” can be connected and at 12 noon on 23 September we will be hearing from Telet Research’s Peter Gradwell and Cybermoor’s Daniel Heery who have been providing a connectivity solution in rural north Yorkshire.

With new and better connectivity comes new opportunities for rural communities. Many of us have had to work remotely throughout the pandemic and communities and policy makers have started to see remote working as possibly making a significant contribution to rural community sustainability and regeneration. Ireland’s Western Development Commission has pioneered activity in this area and at 12 noon on 30 September we will be hearing from Stephen Carolan, the Hubs Programme Manager for the National Hub Network, a Government of Ireland initiative led by the Department of Community and Rural Development and project managed by the Western Development Commission that provides a vehicle for individual hubs to come together under a shared identity to maximise the economic opportunity of remote working.

These are both online events through Zoom. and the format will include expert input, followed by questions and answers and small group discussion.
