Irish Rural Link is calling for the rollout of the National Broadband Plan to be delivered

Irish Rural Link is calling for the rollout of the National Broadband Plan to push ahead and be delivered as a matter of urgency.

The organisation says it’s very concerned that Department of Communications officials said this week that not going ahead with the plan will be one of the options they will put to the government when it decides on the future of the project.

Irish Rural Link says not going ahead with the plan cannot and should not be an option.

A decision on the Broadband plans future is expected before the Easter recess, and Irish Rural link says serious consideration must be given to the implications on investment and growth in rural areas if the plan is scrapped.
