Broadband Plan To Be Examined In Oireachtas

Written 6 days ago by Hannah Murphy


The National Broadband Plan is to be put under the spotlight in the Oireachtas today.

Two separate committees are due to examine issues relating to its roll-out in rural Ireland.

Independent Auditor Peter Smyth will be asked to explain his report into the tendering process at the Oireachtas Communications Committee.

Mr Smyth found the plan hadn’t been undermined by meetings between former Minister Denis Naughten and businessman David McCourt who’s part of the consortium bidding for the contract.
