Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
Ms Michele Connolly:
As the Deputy might expect, I am not going to be drawn on what the level of return will be in this project. I will say this is a project where the bidder is exposed to the risk of demand. That is not a feature in all infrastructure projects. Where an investor is exposed to the risk of demand, that has a bearing on the level of return expected from the project. This project carries much more risk.
