A Mayo Councillor claims the rollout of the National Broadband Plan will not provide a solution for all parts of the country, as the companies involved are driven by profit and "will pick the low-hanging fruit".

Swinford-based Fianna Fail Councillor Michael Smyth believes local authorities should get involved in providing the infrastructure needed for broadband, and then bringing in the provider - in a similar way to how group water schemes were set up.

He claims Mayo County Council should seek EU or Government funding to put such a plan in place, and provide hubs in towns across the county to facilitate people working from closer to home.
