€34 million to be spent connecting 8,660 premises in Louth to fibre broadband
A total of €34 million will be spent in Louth to connect the remaining homes and business currently without it to fibre broadband.
While most of the county is well connected in terms of internet connectivity, around 14% of properties in Louth are not yet connected to fibre broadband.
The €34 million will be allocated under the National Broadband Plan to ensure all of the county has access to high speed internet. Some 8,660 premises in the county will be connected via the installation of high-speed fibre network, as part of the National Broadband Plan roll-out.
No official bidder has as yet been chosen to roll out the nationwide plan but a decision is expected on the tender process later this year.
