16th December 2019

National Broadband Ireland (NBI) representatives addressed Minister of State for Community Development, Natural Resources & Digital Development, Sean Canney and chief executives and broadband officers from local authorities, at an event in Tullamore on December 13th last.

The Telecommunications Action Group (TAG) is convened monthly under the auspices of the Department of Rural and Community Development, for broadband officers in each county. NBI were invited to participate and present, following the recent signing of the contract to roll out the National Broadband Plan (NBP).

NBI chief executive Peter Hendrick gave an overview of the organisation’s plans, while the network deployment plan was outlined by TJ Malone, NBI’s Deployment chief executive. The detailed programme for design and ‘make-ready for build’ was explained by Pat O’Toole, Director of Network Build, who also emphasised the importance of working with local authorities on a host of issues -including way leaves and environmental directives.

Head of Product Paul Mulqueen provided insight and guidance for the infrastructure and network delivery required for the Broadband Connection Points (BCPs), while Head of Communications Nicola Cooke outlined the stakeholder engagement plan and communication initiatives that NBI are, or will, undertake ahead of the start of surveying in January 2020.
