Poll: Are you happy with your broadband speed?

A subsidised scheme to guarantee minimum speeds in broadband blackspots is being wound down.

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

A Government decision to end the scheme will affect users in some of the country’s worst broadband blackspots. They had been able to benefit from a subsidised service from 3 Ireland under the scheme. However, minimum speeds are no longer guaranteed.

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.

We want to know about your experience: Are you happy with your broadband speed?
