24/01/2019 [Questions] I am asking the Minister for details on the current and projected costs for the roll-out of the national broadband plan and the status of the plan. When does he think rural business people, householders, schoolgoers and farmers will have some modicum of broadband service in order that t...Vol-978 Book-4 Page [275]
24/01/2019 [Questions] The Deputy missed earlier exchanges that might have answered some of his questions. I ask the House to forgive me if I am being repetitive.

24/01/2019 [Questions] The Minister said he did not want to be repetitive, but there is nothing to repeat in what he has said. There is nothing in it. The motion we discussed earlier this week made it clear that the estimated total cost of the delivery of the national broadband plan is escalating. The lack ...Vol-978 Book-4 Page [276]
24/01/2019 [Questions] I have indicated that I will not be in a position to clarify costs until we have completed the process. The Deputy will understand that people who are considering tenders do not talk about those tenders ahead of a decision. That is normal practice. The Deputy has expressed concern abo...Vol-978 Book-4 Page [276]
24/01/2019 [Questions] This is a riddle. I am worried that this project will turn out like the children's hospital project. The Minister has said that the non-disclosure of tender prices is a normal part of the tender process. This process is not normal. It is abnormal because we have just one bidder. The...Vol-978 Book-4 Page [276]
24/01/2019 [Questions] The Deputy has to remember that we have had a competitive process. There was more than one bidder in the early stages. We have had to contend with the withdrawal of some of those who initially entered the process. That has been the reality.[Bruton, Richard]Vol-978 Book-4 Page [276]

For those in areas where commercial operators cannot or will ...Vol-965 Book-5 Page [551]
14/02/2018 [Questions] I have raised this matter consistently with the Minister since he assumed office.

14/02/2018 [Questions] I am grateful for what the Minister has said about the ongoing roll-out. However, I have people coming to me who do not have access.

27/06/2019 [Questions] The Minister is taking this on and I welcome that. A key element is to encourage employers and companies to see offering remote working as an opportunity for themselves.

27/03/2019 [Questions] The NBP aims to ensure high-speed broadband access to all premises in Ireland. This is being achieved through a combination of commercial investment and a State-led intervention. The NBP procurement process was launched in 2015, following a public consultation. The NBP has been a cata...Vol-981 Book-1 Page [21]
27/03/2019 [Questions] I thank the Minister. What Deputy Ó Cuív would like to be clear on is the timeframe for the announcement. I know we have addressed some of this in previous questions but it is imperative that we reach a decision without delay. Some premises have received broadband from private operato...Vol-981 Book-1 Page [22]
27/03/2019 [Questions] As we have discussed, the decision on this is imminent.

While there were initially 12 places nominated as BCPs in County Kerry, it seems now that only eight are to be completed. People...Vol-1000 Book-3
05/11/2020 [Questions] I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. Broadband connection points will be among the first sites connected under the national broadband plan. They represent a collaboration between my Department, the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, local authorities and t...Vol-1000 Book-3
05/11/2020 [Questions] Broadband coverage is very patchy in the whole of County Kerry, including in Lispole, Sionnach, Brandon and Cloghane, beyond Dingle, and in the Lyracrumpane area, where it is difficult even to get telephone coverage, never mind broadband.

17/09/2020 [Questions] There has been a dynamic shift in the way we use technology due to Covid-19.

My experience on the ground with the number of people coming into my office each day suggests ...Vol-997 Book-5
17/09/2020 [Questions] I thank the Deputy. The provision of telecommunications services is primarily a matter for commercial providers operating in a liberalised market. Nonetheless, under the national broadband plan, the Government will fund the provision of a high-speed broadband network in areas where it ...Vol-997 Book-5

15/07/2020 [Questions] I thank the Minister for his answer. The Minister listed several numbers of homes with various target dates. This is welcome but I am particularly interested in the potential for acceleration. I must confess that I was a sceptic in respect of the national broadband plan in the last Dá...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [22]
15/07/2020 [Questions] I thank the Deputy. This plan was debated extensively throughout the lifetime of the last Dáil. Whatever my concerns around ownership issues and contractual arrangements, and they were real concerns, I was always supportive of the need for a rural broadband system. I am happy to take....Vol-995 Book-1 Page [23]
15/07/2020 [Questions] I thank the Minister. Going back to the heart of the question, I wish to reiterate the proposals which I may discuss with the Minister. They are complementary to the national broadband plan rather than an alternative to it. I am trying to get a greater understanding of the suggestion ...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [23]
15/07/2020 [Questions] Like so many other projects the national broadband plan has been delayed slightly by the Covid-19 pandemic due to the difficulty of completing certain work but it has not been delayed as much as other projects.

Throughout the pandemic we...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [25]
15/07/2020 [Questions] The Deputy is right. Everything has changed following the pandemic. Householders are rightly seeking information.

15/07/2020 [Questions] I urge caution on the private sector and having to row back on them.

Those 6,050 households cannot be left behind at t...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [25]
15/07/2020 [Questions] I agree with the Deputy. Some very high-profile people have criticised the NBP. Strategically for the State, the guarantee that no house will be left out is critical. It is not relying on the market and we will intervene in areas where the market cannot or will not deliver. The mappi...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [26]

15/07/2020 [Questions] I raise the issue of the national broadband plan with the Minister but I am conscious that he has already handled two questions on this issue. I had thought they might be grouped. For the purpose of making this exchange a little bit useful, perhaps the Minister could focus his response...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [30]
15/07/2020 [Questions] After years of working in this area, it is my assessment that we often focus on the technology, the wires, the hardware and the way one gets digital information moved from one place to the other. I believe that the key issue for success is in the use and actual behavioural side of it an...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [30]
15/07/2020 [Questions] I appreciate the response and understand the perspective. Very significant societal changes will come with the full implementation of this plan. During the lockdown, as RTÉ reported, one of the digital hubs in my area did not have high-speed broadband connection. The building existed,...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [30]
15/07/2020 [Questions] On the last point, I do not believe the contractual arrangements are agreed about the exact route network options that will be used.

15/07/2020 [Questions] In my experience information and communication on this are really important. People are really frustrated about access to information.

15/07/2020 [Questions] Often during Minister's questions, a Minister will respond by saying they will revert to the Deputy with further information.

15/07/2020 [Questions] I welcome the Minister's response. According to a report in 2019 by a major phone operator, the creation of regional digital hubs could generate in the region of €312 million for the regional economy and create over 8,400 new jobs across over 1,000 new businesses. I am sure that the Mi...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [33]
15/07/2020 [Questions] I would be happy to do that. I agree with the Deputy's assessment that the establishment of digital hubs provides huge opportunities, particularly for Irish towns and villages, to restore commercial and retail life to the centre of our historic streets in our towns. In terms of an exam...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [34]
15/07/2020 [Questions] I thank the Minister for answering my question. Traffic congestion is a huge issue in my constituency. I would like to see more people working from home. It is important the Government puts in place the infrastructure to make that a possibility. I again thank the Minister for his res...Vol-995 Book-1 Page [34]
15/07/2020 [Questions] One of the areas on which we can work together is the identification of premises that might be appropriate.

21/05/2019 [Questions] The national broadband plan is a plan to design, build and operate a network which will make high speed broadband available to every home in rural Ireland within seven years and to continue to operate the service for 35 years. Granahan McCourt relied on the resources of Tetrad Corporati...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [950]
04/10/2017 [Questions] I would be happy to let the same question from all three of us be answered.[Dooley, Timmy]Vol-959 Book-7 Page [773]
21/05/2019 [Questions] The Minister has gone ahead and appointed Granahan McCourt as the preferred bidder for the national broadband plan, yet he has not received basic information on the bidder. What is the full membership of the consortium and who is ultimately financing it? The Minister has confirmed that...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [950]

21/05/2019 [Questions] The position is that the commitments in relation to equity will be contractualised in advance of contract award. Any committed funding that has not been drawn down by National Broadband Ireland at financial close will require a guarantee in a form that is acceptable to the Department. ...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [951]
04/10/2017 [Questions] I have only one priority.[Stanley, Brian]Vol-959 Book-7 Page [774]
21/05/2019 [Questions] It is clear now that the only commitment that Granahan McCourt has to make, along with the myriad of companies that sit behind it supporting it and providing it with letters of comfort, is to invest €175 million of equity. It is also clear from the Minister's answer that all of that €17...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [951]

21/05/2019 [Questions] The position is that the contract will provide an enforceable equity commitment on behalf of the project which will cover the equity involved of €175 million. The company will also have to provide all of the working capital. As I indicated in my initial reply, the State will not be mak...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [951]

04/10/2017 [Questions] I propose to take Questions Nos. 23 to 25, inclusive, together.
Before responding to the question, I wish to inform Dáil Éireann that, as of today and under the commercial stimulus provided under the national broadband plan, Ireland has now become a global broadband leader with 13% of ...
Vol-959 Book-7 Page [774]
21/05/2019 [Questions] My question also relates to the national broadband plan.

04/10/2017 [Questions] The Minister spent a lot of time talking about what the commercial companies are doing, particularly with regard to what is already happening. This has very little to do with the State. I am aware that SIRO has committed to 51 towns. There is a problem when it comes to the 300,000 hou...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [776]
21/05/2019 [Questions] I thank the Minister for his reply. Unfortunately, a detailed cost-benefit analysis was not done on the alternatives. It is clear that the Government does not have a plan B, despite what has unfolded in recent weeks. The Minister is responsible for the national broadband plan which is...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [952]

09/05/2017 [Questions] I thank Deputy Dooley for his question. The Government's national broadband plan, NBP, will provide high-speed broadband access to all premises in Ireland, regardless of location. The NBP has been a catalyst in encouraging investment by the telecoms sector. That investment has meant t...Vol-949 Book-3 Page [289]
21/05/2019 [Questions] I assure the Deputy that the cost-benefit analysis was conducted according to strict procedures and that, contrary to his claim, my Department did not in any way suggest that it was not done in the correct manner. I also assure the Deputy that we have examined every alternative. One of...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [953]

09/05/2017 [Questions] I look forward to checking out the website to see all of that information, but the one piece of information I suspect will not be there is some kind of a timeline or deadline by which the Minister will have signed the contract. Will the Minister even give us an expected date for the iss...Vol-949 Book-3 Page [289]
21/05/2019 [Questions] The Minister suggests that an alternative would have to be cheaper. How much of the €2.95 billion State subsidy will be paid to another private company, Eir, for the use of its poles and ducting? We have a network in place. As regards people being left out, the network to which I am r...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [953]
04/10/2017 [Questions] There is no incentive for it to roll out the fibre quickly to the house for the reason that it will not get anything extra out of it, or very little, whereas any competitor would have to reach the household and connect the fibre to it to get any payment of any kind. I do not believe the...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [776]

21/05/2019 [Questions] To explain to the Deputy, the proposal involves rolling out 146,000 km of fibre. We chose to adopt the approach of using an existing network, which could either be that of Eir or the ESB. Of course, because this project involves state aid, one cannot specify which must be used. It is ...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [953]
04/10/2017 [Questions] I ask the Minister to observe the allotted one-minute timeslot.[An Leas-Cheann Comhairle]Vol-959 Book-7 Page [776]
09/05/2017 [Questions] Eir is doing that. That is the subject of a commercial decision by a contractor who talked about this in 2015. The Government argued the toss and procrastinated - during a period when Deputy Naughten was and was not the Minister - and it sought a commitment that Eir was going to do it....Vol-949 Book-3 Page [290]

04/10/2017 [Questions] First, and it is not me who stated this, because no one in this House has believed me when I have said it on numerous occasions, but Adrian Weckler, in the Irish Independent on 6 July, who stated: "It is very possible that much of the current private-sector fibre rollouts from Eir...and....Vol-959 Book-7 Page [776]
09/05/2017 [Questions] The aim of the national broadband plan is to deliver high-speed broadband to every single premises in the State on a commercial and non-commercial basis. Because of the work being done on the national broadband plan we have now ensured that commercial companies, on a commercial basis, a...Vol-949 Book-3 Page [290]

04/10/2017 [Questions] The Minister said that SIRO informed him just before close of business last week that it was not going to participate in this bid contract. The dogs in the street have known for the past six months that SIRO was not going to bid for this. That should have been no surprise to the Minist...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [777]
09/05/2017 [Questions] I carry no torch for Eir, but it is a little bit rich of the Minister to criticise Eir or any commercial company for their inability to deliver on commitments. This has been at the Government's door - a Government that the Minister is part of - since 2012. At that stage high-speed broa...Vol-949 Book-3 Page [290]

09/05/2017 [Questions] I assure Deputy Dooley that we are getting action because I am not waiting around at all.

21/05/2019 [Questions] That is a ComReg regulated price which is independently set. It can be altered by ComReg. It would have to paid whether ESB poles or Eir poles were used.

04/10/2017 [Questions] I want to focus on the procurement process. Notwithstanding what I believe to be the Minister's bona fides in seeking to get this project over the line, and I believe him to be genuine, we are getting bombarded with metrics, statistics and the use of a language that for many people who ...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [777]
04/10/2017 [Questions] I thank the Deputy for acknowledging the fact that we have now moved from a situation where the proposed intervention area, which comprised 900,000 premises across rural Ireland, is now down to 542,000 premises.

06/12/2016 [Questions] The Minister will be aware from previous parliamentary replies that he has given to my party that the data show that nearly 50% of all homes and businesses in 12 counties may have to wait until 2022 to achieve the high-speed broadband set out in the Minister's plan. That is dependent on...Vol-931 Book-3 Page [287]

At the end of the day the response will be based on the re...Vol-931 Book-3 Page [287]

That is why we are focusing immediately on implementation of the task force's report on mobile phone and broadband services. W...Vol-931 Book-3 Page [288]
04/10/2017 [Questions] If he has all the information and knows what the price is and that the companies have the capacity to roll it out, how in God's name has the Minister found himself involved in such an intricate and open-ended scheme and that he cannot ask his own people to give us a beginning and an end ...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [778]
04/10/2017 [Questions] The Minister has been saying for a week that the tender process is competitive and everything is okay with it but he knows and I know that it was significantly skewed once SIRO pulled out. It is also skewed by the fact that Eir has gone in and cherry-picked the 300,000 households. I we...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [779]
04/10/2017 [Questions] The Minister mentioned the auction for the 3.6 Ghz spectrum, if I am not mistaken. I would like to know the justification for it. My understanding is that there is not a definitive definition of 5G at this point in time. There is no proper definition because the technology is moving a...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [779]

21/05/2019 [Questions] The question has two elements to it. One relates to the cost-benefit analysis and if all of the updates to the original cost-benefit analysis have been published. If not, when will they be published? The second aspect asks whether the initial investment by the preferred bidder will be...Vol-1 Book-183 Page [958]
04/10/2017 [Questions] This is the fundamental difference. What we are doing has never been done anywhere else in the world. I am open to correction on this but, as of today, we have broken all records. Some 13% of premises outside of our cities have access to pure fibre. This is not happening anywhere els...Vol-959 Book-7 Page [780]
21/05/2019 [Questions] To some degree the earlier question from Deputy Stanley covers the Deputy's points.

21/05/2019 [Questions] People obviously raise the issue with me.

21/05/2019 [Questions] The Secretary General of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform does not agree with the Minister because he was very forthright in his response on the cost not outweighing the benefits.

21/05/2019 [Questions] I will not enter into a public dispute with the Secretary General of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.

22/09/2020 [Questions] Rural Carrigaline or rural Bushypark, perhaps.[Ó Cuív, Éamon]Vol-997 Book-6
22/09/2020 [Questions] The surveying work being done at the moment is to make sure we get the design right and that will determine the choice. It is not on the basis of which is closest to the centre or which is further out. It is designed to make it the easiest possible delivery. Included in that could be ...Vol-997 Book-6
22/09/2020 [Questions] Minister, my role is to accelerate the time, so we get as many questions as possible in. An Teachta Ó Cuív has one minute.[An Leas-Cheann Comhairle]Vol-997 Book-6
22/09/2020 [Questions] Is it possible for the Department, in consultation with National Broadband Ireland, which has got this fantastic State contract, to perhaps get an outline of how it plans on rolling out this particular project and how it intends carrying out the surveying? That will then answer the ques...Vol-997 Book-6

22/09/2020 [Questions] I beg your pardon, Minister. Deputy Ó Murchú wishes to come in.[An Leas-Cheann Comhairle]Vol-997 Book-6
22/09/2020 [Questions] It is just a follow-up with regard to the plan. Obviously, I agree with what Deputy Ó Cuív said on about a statement on this roll-out, particularly from a point of view of what surveys need to be done and the timeline. I accept there is an issue in respect to the most difficult 10%. H...Vol-997 Book-6
22/09/2020 [Questions] To answer those two questions first, there was a strategic decision in the application of fibre that the vast majority would be delivered in this manner.

22/09/2020 [Questions] I apologise for renaming the national broadband plan in the question. I will forego an introduction if the Minister can go straight into a reply. I do not expect a county by county breakdown. If the Minister has information on County Louth I will be happy enough.[Ó Murchú, Ruairí]Vol-997 Book-6
22/09/2020 [Questions] The Deputy does not expect a county by county breakdown but I will give the figure for County Louth of the number of houses surveyed so far. Based on the information available on 15 September, I can advise that the following is the number of premises per county that have been surveyed t...Vol-997 Book-6
