Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment
National Broadband Plan: Discussion
We have been able to make assumptions along the way. We had the regulator before the committee prior to Ms Connolly's coming before us. We know the cost involved. We know what the ducts and poles will cost. There is an assumption that 80% of people will sign up at €30 per premises. Ms Connolly indicated, based on the submissions made by Eir and Granahan McCourt, that she knows all the costs. Will she estimate, based on those projections, what the value of the infrastructure will be at year 25, assuming that 80% of the 542,000 involved will sign up?
