Surveying for National Broadband Plan continues in Wicklow

National Broadband Ireland (NBI), the company rolling out the new high speed fibre broadband network today announced that surveying works in Wicklow underway.

NBI are carrying out the works in line with the Government’s National Broadband Plan (NBP).

Homes and communities begin to be connected in Intervention Areas across the country, with 15,781 homes, farms, commercial businesses and schools already connected in Co Wicklow.

Under the National Broadband Plan, Wicklow will see an investment of €59M in the new high speed fibre network. This will enable e-learning, remote monitoring of livestock or equipment, e-health initiatives, better energy efficiency in the home, and facilitate increased levels of remote working.

Locations of Broadband Connection Points in Co. Wicklow will include Crossbridge Community Hall, Brockagh Resource Centre, Knockree Youth Hostel, and Ballinacor Community Park.

Primary schools in the Intervention Area are also being connected for educational access as part of the NBP.

NBI Chief Executive Peter Hendrick said “substantial progress has been made from surveying, design, build to connection works”.

“As an increasing number of homes and businesses are being connected, we are confident that the rollout will continue to gather pace as we look to connect thousands more homes and businesses.

“We are acutely aware that people want access to high-speed broadband and our goal is to deliver that as quickly as possible,” Mr Hendrick added.
