Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
Ms Michele Connolly:
There was a significant difference in the order of €1 billion. A key element related to the costing of the technical solution that was going to be used. Additional information came to light on the design of the network required to deliver broadband and the extent to which the network was going to be able to rely on the existing infrastructure, the coverage that would provide and the cost to implement the project. That information would have come to light over the course of the competitive dialogue process.
