Donegal TD, Pearse Doherty, has asked the Minister for Communications for an urgent update on the timelines for the rollout of the National Broadband Plan in Donegal.
The Sinn Fein Deputy said more and more people are becoming frustrated with the lack of broadband in the county.
He said “With more people in Donegal working from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sinn Féin offices in Donegal are inundated with frustrated homeowners who cannot access high-speed broadband from their homes. In this day and age, this is unacceptable.”
“I and my Sinn Féin colleagues have raised this issue with the relevant agencies and the Minister numerous times over the years and the answer is always that the National Broadband Plan will solve the issue.
“The people of Donegal are still waiting on that to be fully rolled out and their patience is understandably wearing thin.”
“I have today asked the Minister for Communications for an update on timelines for the county in relation to the rollout of the National Broadband Plan.
“People need to know when they can expect to have access. We cannot have Donegal residents simply living in hope. Once I have answers, I will of course share these with the people of Donegal.”Tags:
