Surveying for National Broadband Plan Commences in North Cork

Surveying for National Broadband Plan Commences in North Cork
National Broadband Ireland (NBI), the company rolling out the new high speed fibre broadband network under the Government’s National Broadband Plan (NBP) today announced that surveying works in several areas of Cork are well underway.
 
In Cork, there are 79,424 premises in the Intervention Area (IA), which includes homes, farms, commercial businesses and schools. This equates to 29% of all premises in the county. Under the National Broadband Plan, Cork will see an investment of €314M in the new high speed fibre network. This will enable e-learning, remote monitoring of livestock or equipment, e-health initiatives, better energy efficiency in the home, and facilitate increased levels of remote working.
 
NBI crews have made substantial progress in Cork, the following areas are now being surveyed: 
– Ballydesmond
– Kiskeam
– Umeraboy
– Knocknagree
– Rineen
– Cullen
– Coolinarna
– Millstreet
– Hollymount
– Caherbarnagh
 
It is great to see progress on the rollout of the National Broadband Plan in North Cork. I am looking forward to seeing further progress here over the coming weeks and months.
