The National Broadband Plan aims to provide access to high speed broadband to all premises in Ireland, regardless of location, via a combination of commercial investment and a State intervention. I understand that the Bill referred to in the Question was initiated in 2017. The scheduling of debate on the Bill is a matter for the Dail.
