Seven town centres are to become free public wi-fi zones.
Unlimited access to high speeds will initially be introduced in Knock, Westport, Sligo, Monaghan, and Carrick-On-Shannon town centres.
Wifi spots in Kerry and Donegal will also be brought on stream.
Magnet Networks will install access points on their premises, providing free connectivity within the town centres.
The scheme is already in operation in Galway.
