Over 3,000 Castlerea premises to receive high-speed broadband

National Broadband Ireland announced this week that construction has commenced to deliver high-speed broadband to 3,600 premises in Castlerea, bringing the number of Roscommon premises at construction phase to almost 7,200.

Commenting on the rollout in Roscommon Peter Hendrick, Chief Executive Officer, National Broadband Ireland said: “We are confident that the rollout will continue to gather pace as our ability to move premises from the construction phase to the order phase ramps up.

“We are currently working closely with retail service providers, and other stakeholders, to connect homes in County Roscommon. Minimum speeds of 500Mbps will be available.

“Our mission is to end the digital divide across the country. Digital connectivity is critical to many of our activities, and this new Fibre-to-the-Home network, will be a key enabler for the sustainability of local businesses and communities”.
