Mr Delargy said Ebrington is key to the future economic success of the city.

“Ebrington is a key driver in transforming Derry, attracting investment and being a home for start-ups and local businesses. They need first-class facilities,” he said.

“Local businesses had previously made me aware of significant issues with accessing Wi-Fi on the site and that a solution may take two years.

“I am pleased that after working closely with local businesses and Openreach, we secured a commitment to have fibre broadband fully operational on this site by the end of this year and it’s fantastic that this has now been delivered.”
