International connectivity


Details on Project Kelvin which established a direct international link between the northwest of the province and North America

Project Kelvin

The €29.5m project is a collaborative initiative between the Department for the Economy and the Republic of Ireland’s Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) and funded under the Interreg IV Programme.

The direct international link is attractive to global companies, such as leading financial houses, exchange markets, service and media companies, who require fast, low latency bandwidth that avoids traditionally congested routes, such as around the New York and London waterways.

Under the contract, pricing, latency and availability are guaranteed until December 2018.
