Digital divide stopping rural companies going global


We are the IDA’s dream – a solid employer, willing to give employment in a less populated area in a technologically advanced and probably future-proofed industry. For me, it is a dream location – it has a great educational system, good available health services and water – even the rural roads, once in deplorable shape, are quite adequate and getting better. 

But one item of vital infrastructure is not only far behind the rest of Europe, but a world apart from the likes of Dublin, Cork, and much of Belfast. As an Irish business owner at the start of the 21st century, I discovered that Irish broadband, outside of the big cities, was anything but broad.
