Commercial Investment

A key principle of the National Broadband Plan is to support and stimulate commercial investment through policy and regulatory measures. This has acted as a catalyst to commercial investment by the telecommunications sector.

Since the publication of the NBP in 2012, the Commercial Telecommunications Sector has invested over €2.5bn. This was spent on upgrading and modernising networks which support the provision of high speed broadband and mobile telecommunications services.
