About the Telecoms Unit
A "one-stop-shop" for all telecoms-related requests within the Dublin City Council administrative area.
The Telecoms Unit was established to encourage and increase telecoms investment in Dublin through:
- Creating a central point of contact within the organisation and allow for better use of city council owned assets both above and below the ground. The remit of the unit will ensure that all future capital investments and infrastructure projects are telecoms proofed.
- Making available the use of public assets such as ducting, buildings and street furniture, and a related asset catalogue, to facilitate the deployment of telecoms networks and equipment such as small cells. Please click here to view the asset registry.
- Adopting and implementing the new European Electronic Communications Code (EECC), which includes Article 57(2) Directive (EU) 2018/1972 that concerns the "Deployment and Operation of Small-Area Wireless Access Points".
- The creation and publication of a rate card that sets out fair, standardised prices for access to council-owned assets for the purpose of deploying telecoms equipment.
- Proactive engagement with industry partners and the provision of a centralised escalation route to ensure prompt resolution of issues and queries.

The world is becoming increasingly connected. Societal and economic changes are being driven by technological developments like the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and big data. The impact of these technologies will be underpinned by the robust connectivity of 5G.
5G stands for “Fifth Generation” Wireless Technology. It is the next evolution of mobile technology after 4G LTE. 5G offers:
- Faster speeds through lower latency and higher throughput.
- Improved efficiency and reliability.
- Increased capacity to sustain a massive increase in connections between devices and the internet.
