WiFi has been installed in Limavady Town Centre, offering shoppers, residents and visitors free street-based WiFi in the heart of the town centre, covering Main Street, Market Street, Catherine Street and Linenhall Street.
The installation of WiFi in Limavady is part of a wider WiFi town centres project that included the towns of Ballycastle and Ballymoney, which also fall within the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area.
The joint project is part funded by Ballymoney Borough Council, Limavady Borough Council, and Moyle District Council prior to the local government merger, and the Department for Social Development through the Town Revitalisation Programme. In an earlier project, WiFi was also installed in Portrush by Coleraine Borough Council.
Roe Valley Chamber of Commerce President, David Brewster said: “I’m very pleased to hear that Limavady town WiFi is now in place, benefitting both residents and visitors alike. Being online is so much part of our way of life nowadays and enriches the visitor experience in Limavady.,” he said.
Joanne McLaughlin, Project Officer for Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council thanked town centre businesses that facilitated the project through giving permission for their buildings to be used to host the signalling equipment.
“My sincere thanks go to the owners and tenants of John Paul Fashions, Huey & Henderson, O’Connell Shoes, Hunters Bakery, Roe Valley Cycles, SDLP Office, EPH Supplies Ltd. and D R Brewster Solicitors. Without their cooperation, the project would simply not have been possible.
