National Broadband Plan

The government has officially given the go ahead for the National Broadband Plan at a cost of almost €3 billion.

A preferred bidder for the contract has been appointed to roll out high speed internet access to 1.1 million people.

Cabinet approved the plan after a much longer than expected meeting.

It means high speed broadband will be rolled out to every home and business in the country.

The first new homes will be connected in 2020 - but some may have to wait years to be on the grid.

In the first year of the plan 300 Broadband Connection Points will be set up around the country.

This means people might not have broadband in their own home, but they'll have somewhere close they can go to work.
