The company overseeing the National Broadband Plan has told operators it can “significantly” speed up its roll-out.

National Broadband Ireland, which is controlled by David McCourt, a US businessman, was awarded the contract for the National Broadband Plan (NBP) late last year.

The ground-breaking scheme aims to deliver high-speed fibre broadband to more than 540,000 homes and businesses across the country.
