The contractors will be identifiable.

The rollout of the National Broadband Plan in Leitrim has ramped up this week as teams begin to survey some areas.

NBI contractors will be on the ground in the Ballinamore Municipal District inspecting and taking pictures of infrastructure such as poles, cables and underground ducts.

Councillor Caillian Ellis is welcoming the progress which will see high speed fibre internet installed to homes and premises across the county.


Over eleven and half thousand properties in Leitrim will need to be serviced under the Government's multi-billion euro plan with an estimated 46 million euro investment in the county.

The Ballinamore native believes rural Ireland must be provided with an adequate broadband service to ensure people can work effectively in the county.

''As we all know, broadband is vital for survival especially for rural areas like this. Every house has to have broadband for us to survive because everybody is so dependent on it now. You know, when there was some done here earlier on they stopped at one house and the next house didn't get the connection and it caused an awful lot of frustration and anger with people the way it was done so hopefully that will be overlooked now.
