Peter O’Dwyer: The new knowns and many unknowns of NBI
Politicians uncovered more information about the National Broadband Plan in recent days, but serious questions remain about the financing, ownership, control and progress of the state’s biggest ever deal
After a bruising couple of months of public scrutiny, National Broadband Ireland’s senior executives made their way to Leinster House on Thursday afternoon to face TDs and senators.
Peter Hendrick, the company’s chief executive, was flanked by his chief legal adviser, chief financial officer, chief marketing officer and head of network deployment.
The team was in many ways a good reflection of the range of issues the Oireachtas Communications Committee wanted addressed after a series of revelations in the Business Post about the financing, ownership, control and progress of the largest contract in the history of the state.
