When the best data in Dublin is gone, it’s the best information in the city, writes Ian Murray.
The Irish Times reports that the hard drive is the first to be lost as part of the city’s drive to get its network back on track, and that a wellfleet drive is needed to keep it running.
In a statement, Dublin City Council said: “This drive has been ongoing for some time and it is expected that this drive will be completed in the next few days.”
Dublin City Council has already announced that it will provide a free Wi-Fi network, but has said that it may also have to pay for additional data services as part the drive.
“We have had to consider this in order to deliver the best possible service for our customers, including those with limited or no internet access, to ensure we are meeting the needs of the community,” the statement said.
“In addition, the council has a very limited number of wellfleet hard drives available, which have to be moved around the city to maintain the network.
This has been an ongoing process for some months and is now nearing completion.””
We are committed to delivering a high-quality service for all our customers,” it added.
The city said that the data has not been moved to its network, as the drive has not begun.
“It is still being delivered to the council’s premises,” it said.
“The council has been advised that this is an ongoing issue and the process is expected to take several days.”
At this time, we have not made any decisions on the cost of this service and are not considering any further options at this time.
“The statement said that no further information would be provided for some customers.”
It said that customers who have not had their data moved are able to call on 1800 999 and speak to a support worker to arrange for a replacement drive.”
We are working with the company to finalise its plans for the services and ensure that this service continues.”
