Unlocking Digital Potential: National Broadband Ireland Connects Leitrim with High-Speed Fibre Broad

In a significant stride towards digital empowerment, National Broadband Ireland (NBI) has commenced construction to deliver high-speed fibre broadband to over 2,100 premises in the Keshcarrigan deployment area of County Leitrim. As part of the government's National Broadband Plan, this initiative aims to bridge the digital divide by providing reliable connectivity to homes, businesses, farms, and schools. Let's explore how this development is set to transform the digital landscape of Leitrim.

Revolutionizing Connectivity in County Leitrim

Under the State's Intervention Area, National Broadband Ireland plans to deliver a minimum speed of 500 megabits per second to approximately 12,000 premises in County Leitrim. With a total government investment of €46 million, this marks the largest infrastructure project in rural Ireland since the introduction of rural electrification. The residents and businesses of Leitrim can look forward to enhanced digital connectivity, paving the way for economic growth and community development.

Construction Underway in Keshcarrigan Deployment Area

The successful completion of the Survey and Design phase has paved the way for construction activities in the Keshcarrigan deployment area. This progress means that 2,147 premises in this region are now undergoing construction to enable high-speed fibre connectivity. Once the construction is complete, residents, businesses, and farms in the area can connect to the NBI network and avail themselves of the benefits of fast and reliable broadband services.

Extending Broadband Availability Across Leitrim

In addition to the ongoing construction in Keshcarrigan, NBI has already completed works in other parts of Leitrim. As a result, 895 premises across the county are now ready to order or pre-order high-speed and reliable broadband services.

By investing in digital infrastructure and fostering digital empowerment, NBI is working towards bridging the digital divide and creating a more inclusive and connected Ireland.

National Broadband Ireland's initiative to bring high-speed fibre broadband to County Leitrim is a significant milestone in the journey towards digital empowerment.
