Citizens First

Public Internet Kiosks Kortrijk


Physical access issues, such as insufficient computing and telecommunications infrastructure, high costs or unreliable services tend to produce digital divides. To overcome social, cultural, educational, and spatial isolation, the city of Kortrijk/Courtrai has put 8 public internet access points into service in the city centre as well as in the surrounding rural communities. Being a multifunctional and secure platform, PIAPs give citizens the opportunity to consult digital services in their own community for free. The applications offered on the platform are highly accessible.
