Local councillors are to call on the communications minister to intervene in the roll out of the national broadband plan in rural Longford.

At a recent meeting of Longford County Council, Councillor Paul Ross informed the chamber that the majority of the county is facing a wait of up to five years for connection to the national network.

Following a motion submitted by Councillor Ross this week, the local authority will now write to Minister Eamon Ryan to accelerate the rollout of rural broadband across the county.
