I thank the Deputy for raising this issue, which is one in which he takes a keen interest. One of the lessons for us all from Covid is the imperative of having good connectivity all over the country. The Government wants to see the national broadband plan implemented as quickly as possible and there has been ongoing engagement between the Minister, Deputy Eamon Ryan, and National Broadband Ireland in that regard. If there are opportunities to accelerate implementation, they will be taken. I will take up with the Minister directly the issue the Deputy has raised. I will support any effort to reduce delays and backlogs and to bring the implementation forward in any way we can.
