Written answers (Question to Communications)

The position I outlined in responding to the previous question remains unchanged. The ESB is continuing its consideration of the prospect of utilising its network to rollout fibre services. To this end, it sought expressions of interest in 2012 for a joint venture with the telecommunications sector. This process has not yet been completed and I await a detailed proposal from the company in this regard.
