Thirty-two areas across the Shannonside region have been designated as hubs for high-speed broadband connections next year.
The government has today revealed the cost of rolling out the National Broadband Plan across the region, which will allow thousands of homes and businesses to access high-speed broadband sometime in the next decade.
According to details released by the government this afternoon, over 39,000 premises across Longford, Leitrim and Roscommon are in the state intervention area for the National Broadband Plan.
Roscommon has the largest number of premises in the region that will need access to the NBP – with 19,000 homes and businesses needing assistance to access high-speed internet.
The total cost to roll out the NBP in Leitrim for the 11,500 premises will be €46m, in Longford for the 8,602 premises it will be 34 million euro and in Roscommon, for the over 19,000 premises it will be €76million.
Ahead of the roll-out of the plan to all areas, the Government has published a list of approximately 300 community centres, schools, library hubs and local GAA halls in every county that will be connected to high speed broadband during 2020, to enable communities to quickly get free public access to high speed broadband.
