National Broadband Ireland and the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications have agreed the targets for the current project year of the National Broadband Plan (NBP).
NBI is committed to delivering a cumulative target of 185,000 premises passed by the end of January 2024.
NBI Chief Executive Officer Peter Hendrick said: “The public can be reassured there is solid progress and real momentum in the rollout of this project now. Ultimately the NBP will make fibre broadband available to over 560,000 homes, farms and businesses. Nearly 120,000 premises are ready to connect to the network and we have over 30,000 live connections today.
“By the end of this year, the proportion of the overall rollout where connections will be available will increase to over one third, as 76,000 further premises will be passed by the NBI fibre network. The number of premises where the fibre build will be completed will almost double over the course of 2023.”
