RURAL BROADBAND USERS could be facing higher charges as the National Broadband Scheme is wound down.

Earlier this year it was announced that over €450 million will be invested in a new fibre broadband network that could bring broadband speeds of between 200 to 1000 Mbps to an initial 50 towns, with the Government committing to faster speeds across the country.
