Eir must stick to new broadband timeline for Clashmore – McGuinness

Sinn Féin local election candidate Conor D. McGuinness Clashmore

Sinn Féin local election candidate Conor D. McGuinness has said that Eir must stick to their new timeline for the roll out of broadband in Clashmore.

McGuinness said:

“Initially we were told that the roll out of Eir’s 300k rural fibre broadband would be completed by the end of 2018, however that deadline has come and gone. I have written to the Broadband Officer for Waterford City and County to outline my concerns about this delay. Eir are now estimating that delivery will be completed by June this year. They must be held to this new timeline.

 

“Over 200 households in Clashmore and surrounding areas will benefit from the roll out of 300k rural fibre broadband. This isn’t just about streaming music or watching movies, high speed internet connection allows people in rural Ireland to start and expand businesses, to work in their own villages, and to enjoy the same connectivity and access to information as people in larger towns and cities.”
