Dáil Éireann - Private Members Business (Rural Independent Group)
6 July 2016

“That Dáil Eireann:

notes the importance of ensuring that every premises, school and business in Ireland should have access to high speed broadband;

acknowledges that the National Broadband Plan (NBP) aims to address this conclusively;

ensure that no home, school or business is left behind in the implementation and delivery of the NBP; and

calls on the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources to:

— ensure, in particular, that services provided by the telecom sector can be delivered in rural Ireland;

— where there is a doubt of delivery by the telecom sector, provide assurance that those homes schools or businesses will get an affordable high speed broadband connection and can be included as part of the State intervention if necessary; and

— update the House on the status of the National Broadband Plan procurement process.” — Mattie McGrath, Michael Collins, Michael Harty, Noel Grealish, Danny Healy-Rae, Michael J. Healy-Rae, Michael Lowry.
