The report isn't expected for a few more weeks

We're still weeks away from getting a report that will decide if the National Broadband Plan process can go ahead.

Peter Smyth is examining whether the National Broadband Plan was undermined by meetings former Communications Minister Denis Naughten had, with a businessman who was part of a bid for the contract to roll out high speed broadband.

The Taoiseach has confirmed Peter Smyth's report into how the tender for the roll-out of high speed broadband was run isn't expected for a number of weeks.

The plan is already overdue for delivery and was expected at the start of November.

Leo Varadkar says he's hopeful it will be positive and the broadband plan can continue. 'I'd be confident we'll have it in the next couple of weeks and hopefully it's positive'.
