Dermot Ahern T.D., Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources today announced the first three locations to benefit from the Governments €25 million Group Broadband Scheme to deliver high-speed broadband into our smaller communities over three years.
The first locations to sign-up are Kilbeggan and Kinnegad, Co Westmeath and Gweedore in Co Donegal. Representatives from the three towns met with the Minister in Dublin today where details were released on the grant-aid and technology which will be used. Both Kinnegad and Kilbeggan will access broadband via wireless technology while Gweedore will utilise a combination of satellite and wireless.
The Minister said further small towns and villages with populations of less than 1,500 will be announced in the coming weeks. Applications are currently being processed by his Departments staff.
