Broadband in Monksland, Co. Roscommon

In Blog by Denis Naughten

 

Earlier today I received a briefing from Eircom regarding the roll out of its next generation broadband high speed network (efibre) to the Monksland area of South Roscommon

monksland.Eircom pointed out that  “there are a number of exchanges serving the telecommunication street-side cabinets in the Athlone area. 
 
A key dependency in the Monksland locality is that most of the land was private rather than taken in charge by the council, which makes securing the permissions associated with deploying the NGA solution less predictable than the same activity on public property. Most of the rest of Athlone is public. This would explain why certain areas can be served more easily and quicker than others. 
 
On a positive note, we have progressed most of the way-leave dependencies and the first two of the cabinets in the Monksland locality have now been enabled with Ready for Order dates at the end of July. The other cabinets should be enabled in the coming months up to the end of the Calendar year“. 

This has been a slow process but I hope that we can make resolve this ongoing issue once and for all, in the near future.

By the way below is a  list of all the local locations which will receive or have received fibre-based high-speed broadband services during the course of Eircom’s  rollout program by July 2016:
