Mission Statement
The Broadband Committee is tasked with: gathering information regarding the availability of broadband internet within the City of Belfast and identifying deficiencies in coverage and/or speeds: providing residents with that information: and providing guidance to the Belfast City Council regarding what role the City should take regarding investment in broadband infrastructure. The Broadband Committee sees increased access to broadband internet service not only as a way to support economic development (through attracting new businesses, but also assisting in the growth of existing local businesses, and home-based businesses), but also to support community development (with parity of access leading to a better-educated community and fostering civic and political engagement.)
