Bray Labour Party Local Election candidate has described the continuing lack of a National Broadband Plan before Easter as a continuing travesty for towns and villages in rural Wicklow
Commenting on the issue McGahon said:
“Over the last few weeks I have been canvassing rural areas in Glencree, Kilmacanogue and Enniskerry. The lack of broadband availability in these areas has been raised with me a number times. Some people live a few metres away from the broadband connections put up by telecom companies but still cannot access it and they are extremely frustrated by this. Many people living in rural areas of Wicklow badly need reliable broadband for work purposes and of course to communicate with friends and family.
I have contacted my colleague Sean Sherlock TD to press this matter further.
The abandoned government promises to deliver the National Broadband are just completely unacceptable at this stage. Wicklow cannot wait any longer. This Fine Gael government cannot defend a service where people have to walk 100s of meters away from their homes to access a broadband reception. We need action from this government not empty promises. I hope to prioritise this issue if I am elected to Wicklow County Council on May 24th” Concluded McGahon
