    Government shaves over

    However, Minister for Communications Alex White said today that the sum “does not represent the full cost of the National Broadband Plan” and that a future government would “likely” spend more on the scheme in future years.

    Ahead of a public tender on the issue which is expected “towards the end of 2015”, Minister White also said that the cost to the state of funding the National Broadband Scheme “would likely be spread over 20 years”.
    they have obviously decided that there's no votes in it

    These are the same clowns that can't seem to get anything done. I said it before, we are not capable of running this country with the morons we have in charge of us. Fiasco after fiasco is what we do best.

    Close to a million must now wait six years for fast broadband

    A spokeswoman for the Department of Communications said that the scheme, which has pledged modern fibre broadband to 750,000 non-urban homes and businesses by 2020, will not roll out this year as planned. The Government has postponed negotiations with bidders such as Eir and Vodafone, saying it hopes to resume the process later this year.The setback means that completion of the rollout plan may not happen until 2022 or later - two years after the Government's promised delivery date and 10 years after the scheme was first launched.
