The cost of the National Broadband Plan could rise to €3 billion.

The Taoiseach confirmed the news earlier this afternoon.

The original cost of the broadband plan was projected to be half a billion euro.

Leo Varadkar has confirmed in the Dail it's going to be much more than that.

He said the cost would be spread over 25 years.

Leo Varadkar has asked the public to focus on the fact that "540,000 homes, farms and businesses" will benefit from the plan.

It had been hoped Ministers would unveil details of the project this week.

However it's been delayed until after Easter.
