NBI give Limerick City & County Council an overview of fibre broadband rollout

12th February 2020

NBI representatives travelled to Limerick County Council recently to present details of the National Broadband Plan (NBP) roll-out in the area, to a meeting of councillors.

Donal Hanrahan, Chief Operations Officer for NBI Deployment gave a high level overview of the NBP, and then focused on details of how the fibre to the home network would be rolled out in county Limerick.

Limerick is among the first counties where design and surveying works will begin this Spring. The fibre deployment area will cover over 21,000 premises, equating to over one fifth of all, homes, schools, farms and businesses in the county. The first areas which will be surveyed include Clarina, Parteen, Lisnagry & Ballinahoun. This will see detailed designs for 3,425 premises, and these will be ready for connection within 12 months. NBI will have commenced works in every county in 2021, as part of a national plan with 227 deployment areas

Contractors will complete detailed surveys of all the current infrastructure in place, including poles and underground ducts, which will enable NBI to create detailed build designs for each deployment area.

Nine high speed internet access hubs – known as Broadband Connection Points (BCPs) will also be made available across the Limerick county in 2020. These include facilities in Bruff, Abbeyfeale and Cappamore, which can be used for remote working, making online payments or online applications, contacting family or friends and partaking in new courses etc.

Please see more information on BCPs here /broadband-connection-points/ and a network map of their location here: /map/
