Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
Ms Michele Connolly:
There are several factors to consider in the issue the Deputy is raising. One of the considerations within the contract is the value of the asset at the end of the 25 years. There is provision in the contract for the State to share in what is assessed to be the terminal value of the asset at that point in time. A calculation will be done at year 25 and a significant portion of that value will be returned to the State.
