‘Reports of woeful rural broadband unfounded’

The director of the Northern and Western Regional Assembly is warning of the danger of talking down rural Ireland when it comes to broadband.

David Minton was speaking as a delegation from the North West is in Brussels today to accept a formal designation of European Entrepreneurial Region 2018.

Mr Minton says we have very high expectations of broadband in rural areas in this country, and that is not necessarily a bad thing.

Speaking on Let’s Talk today though, he said people need to be careful not to present it as a constant negative story about rural Ireland.
