Irish Minister promises broadband access for all


Irish Communications Minister Alex White has pledged that everyone would soon have access to high-speed broadband. Implementation of the national broadband plan was a key priority for the Government and his department, he added.  Eircom and other commercial operators are servicing areas with more than 900 residents, while Mr White’s department is identifying areas not serviced by the commercial sectors, all of which will be included in the national plan, he said. A mapping exercise is under way and, following a period of public consultation, an implementation strategy will be published next year – followed by a competitive tendering process.
