Rapid Progress and Broad Ambitions

The momentum behind this initiative is evident. In a span of just nine months, the number of premises connected to the NBI network has astonishingly doubled. Currently, an additional 180,000 premises are all set to be enveloped in this digital embrace, ensuring that rural Ireland is no longer left in the connectivity shadows.


Leaders Speak: Optimism and a Clear Vision for the Future

Peter Hendrick, the Chief Executive of NBI, highlighted this rapid progress and shared his optimism about the future. But that's not all. An insightful comment from Minister Ossian Smyth emphasised the broader impact.
