The rollout of the National Broadband has been impacted by the pandemic - with a delay in connecting homes and businesses so far.

Around 4,000 homes and businesses have been reached in the first half of this year, out of a target of 115,000 by the end of 2021.

223,000 premises have already been surveyed, and network designs for more than 174,000 premises have been developed since the project commenced.

"We will still build this project ahead of schedule and under budget, despite Covid," says David McCourt who is chair of National Broadband Ireland which holds the contract for the plan to connect homes and businesses to fibre internet.

"Covid has affect supply chains around the world, and affected everyone's ability to deploy capital in human resources around the world, and we're no different."
