Fianna Fáil TD for Clare Timmy Dooley has welcomed confirmation from Eir that fibre broadband is to be rolled out to Quin, Cooraclare and Doonbeg by the end of this month. The service went live in Kilrush last week.
Deputy Dooley commented, “I’m pleased that fibre broadband is finally reaching parts of Clare which have had a substandard service for so long. The roll out of this service will make a big difference to domestic and business customers across the county. Fibre broadband now almost essential for businesses, given the huge rise in online activity over the past number of years. The confirmation from Eir that fibre will be available in Quin, Cooraclare and Doonbeg by the end of the month is welcome.
“We need to ensure now that all towns and villages across the county are brought up to speed and unfortunately the Government’s National Broadband Plan is falling far short of the mark. Deadlines have been pushed out time and time again and now it will be 2022 before all homes and businesses have access to high speed broadband.
“Broadband is the number 1 priority for rural Ireland and it is imperative that the Minister for Rural Development Heather Humphreys delivers on the Government’s promises”.
