Only basic broadband for 30% of State by 2020

The Irish Times has reported that up to 30 per cent of the population may only have access to basic levels of broadband by 2020, according to a report published yesterday by the Government-chaired Next Generation Broadband Taskforce.

The taskforce, set-up by Minister for Communications Pat Rabbitte last June and described by him yesterday as a “unique experiment in partnership” between industry and Government, comprised chief executives of the State’s largest telecommunications companies. It was tasked with making recommendations on how to overcome barriers to greater investment in the roll-out of high-speed broadband services across the State.
