Pringle welcomes school broadband news, but says rural broadband must be rolled out fully

Independent TD for Donegal, Thomas Pringle, has welcomed the news that 679 primary schools, including 42 in Donegal, will be connected to broadband by the end of 2022, but said more work is needed.

Deputy Pringle said: “We are still waiting for the full roll-out of rural broadband. During Dáil debates on Budget 2021 I spoke of the missed opportunity in the Government’s budget to provide for the communications infrastructure rural communities need, especially at a time when so many people are working from home.

“While I welcome this announcement, it must be accompanied by a Government commitment to ensure that all communities in Donegal and across the country have the broadband access they so vitally need.”
