National Broadband Ireland (NBI) has confirmed this week that engineering survey works have now been completed for a further 1,000 premises in County Roscommon.
The company rolling out the new high-speed fibre broadband network under the Government’s National Broadband Plan (NBP) has said that homes, businesses, and farms in Ballaghadereen and Edmondstown are included in this deployment area.
There are approximately 19,000 premises in the intervention area in Roscommon including homes, farms, commercial businesses, and schools.
There are now 8,369 homes, businesses, and farms across the county that can order or pre-order high-speed, reliable broadband. National Broadband Ireland is calling on people living in Roscommon to visit the company’s website and see if they are ready to connect.
“Momentum has been steadily building in the progression of the National Broadband Plan rollout, with homes across the country being connected to high-speed broadband. Our teams continue to work on the rollout plan and good progress has been made from surveying, design, build to connection works in County Roscommon,” said NBI Chief Executive Peter Hendrick.
“Survey and designs are an important part of mapping out how every home, farm and business will be connected, and they provide the blueprint for how the NBI fibre is laid. The BCPs are also a key milestone in delivering access to high-speed internet in the Intervention Area, and we’re delighted to see these being connected for access – internally and externally – right across Roscommon”.
