Galway Minister hits out at calls to reopen the procurement for the National Broadband Plan as ill-advised and ill-timed.

Galway East TD Sean Canney has warned that reopening the National broadband Plan would leave over a million people in rural Ireland waiting up to three to four years for internet service and that it would increase the final cost of the roll-out.

Minister Canney  said the recommendation to bring the network back into public ownership would be impractical given that the infrastructure being used  are already in private ownership creating additional costs.

The Minster for Community development advised against moves to bring the Plan under public ownership on the grounds that it may turn from an asset to a liability as technologies develop.
