Monday 24th November, 2014 UPC welcomes public consultation on proposed National Broadband Plan
UPC welcomes the launch by Minister White of the Government’s public consultation on its proposed National Broadband Plan.
A UPC spokesperson said, “We are fully supportive of the Government’s objective to ensure that those parts of Ireland which currently do not have access to high speed broadband will be able to receive speeds of at least 30 Mbps.
“The National Broadband Plan and related development programmes provide the building blocks for further progress which will complement the multi-million euro investments that have been or are being made by the private sector.
“The challenge for Ireland will be to ensure that we close any remaining gaps with the rest of Europe in order to maximise the economic and social benefits from our digital future. Broadband and the uptake of digital services for buying, selling and participating in society, enhance our lives and must involve everyone.”
