The Galway City Council will shortly launch a new scheme featuring 60 WiFi access points in the city.
Elaine Naughton, the council's head of information technology, told councillors at Monday's meeting about the development.
"The EU has an initiative WiFi4EU - it is the provision of access points at public areas," she said. "We are using street lamps for example in areas of high public footfall such as Liosbaun, the tennis courts in Roscam, playground in Doughiska, Terryland Castle, near Gaelscoil Mhic Amhlaigh."
She also confirmed that the Galway City Council would provide a launch package so people know exactly where the access points will be.
