Kilkenny Leader Roadshow

Piltown has potential to increase it’s broadband significantly, according to Kilkenny LEADER Partnership, as they announce an information roadshow to explain the initiative and how Piltown/Fiddown can get involved. As Piltown/Fiddown is a designated ‘Blue Area’ it means the community is seen to have sufficient broadband services and therefore will not receive any upgrades in next National Broadband Plan. 

The idea outlined at the roadshow was that the community rally together and go about the logistics of laying their own fibre optic cable and setting up their own not-for-profit network provider.
