162

Tipperary County Council  has published an update on  the delivery and implementation of the rollout of the National Broadband Plan.  The high-speed Fibre broadband Network is currently being deployed to over 29,759 premises  in County Tipperary – which includes homes, farms, commercial businesses and schools. This equates to 35% of all premises in the county. The NBP is a state intervention to provide broadband services to locations not served by commercial operators. There are a total of 21  Broadband Connection Points   to be delivered across County Tipperary  and work on these is well underway with some fully operational at present  – these are located in Community Centers  such as in Rossmore and GAA club buildings providing community digital hubs. 35 BCP’s for  primary schools in County Tipperary will also be connected to broadband by the end of 2022.  The council reports that these connections will be in place significantly earlier than the original completion date in 2026.
