Details on high-speed broadband rollout to Mayo communities outlined

THE Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Denis Naughten has outlined the actions being taken to ensure that commercial operators follow through on their commitments to deliver high-speed broadband services to areas of Mayo. In reply to questions raised by Mayo TD Lisa Chambers, he stated: “The government’s National Broadband Plan (NBP) aims to ensure high speed broadband access (minimum 30 megabits per second) to all premises in Ireland, regardless of location. “The NBP has been a catalyst in encouraging investment by the telecoms sector so that today over 67% of the 2.3m premises in Ireland have access to high speed broadband and this is set to increase to 77% (1.8m premises) by the end of 2018 and to 90% (2.1m premises) by the end of 2020.”
