County Tipperary will receive an investment of €118 million to provide fibre broadband to cover over 29,000 premises including approximately 6,000 businesses and farms.
In all around 30% of all premises in Tipperary will be passed and eligible for connection.
Once the rollout of the National Broadband plan begins in the next few months, a total of nine Broadband Connect Points in remote area’s of the county will be prioritised for connection to high-speed fibre broadband.
It means these locations will be connected to high-speed broadband before the rollout reaches the surrounding area.
Broadband officer for County Tipperary Simon Howe outlines the areas to benefit.
