Free Wifi now available on streets of Wexford

By Esther Hayden

Free Wifi is now available on the streets of Wexford town.

The new service which is a joint initiative between Wexford County Council and local Wexford company Rocketbroadband was launched at Selskar last Friday by Mayor of Wexford Cllr Ger Carthy.

'The service has been designed to provide members of the public with a free, easily assessable and reliable Wifi service and is ideal for email retrieval and internet access', said Garret McElroy of Skytel, the Wexford-based company who has provided the free Wifi service through its Rocketbroadband label.

'The service can be accessed at any time of day. It is simple to use, no registration is required, just logon and use.

'It's our way of giving something back to the people of Wexford who have consistently supported us over the last number of years. Rocketbroadband is a local business, based in Drinagh. We are at the cutting edge of modern broadband technology, and we're growing,' added Mr McElroy.

Director of Services at Wexford County Council Tony Larkin congratulated Rocketbroadband and thanked the company for its generous support of the free Wifi initiative. 'With Phase 1 of the service now operational, Wexford is one of the few towns in Ireland to offer a free Wifi service on its streets. It's good for the people of Wexford, it's good for visitors to Wexford and that means it's good for business', said Mr Larkin.
