Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
Ms Michele Connolly:
In the context of the reappraisal, we considered a number of scenarios where the project would only deliver 90% or 95% coverage and assessed their financial impacts. The overall assessment was that, although it would reduce the cost of the project, it would also reduce the revenue that the project would generate and one would still have to try to deliver broadband by other means to those areas eliminated from the project.
