Infrastructure Progress

National Broadband Ireland, said, "High-speed fibre broadband connections with minimum speeds of 500 megabits per second are available to more than 200,000 homes, farms and businesses.

"The design and build of a high-speed wholesale broadband network is a major, complex infrastructure project which takes place in a phased process. We have now completed the vast majority of the engineering and design groundwork that is fundamental to the delivery of the project, with three in every five premises either under or completed construction," NBI added.
