Re: Re: Fast-Track Infrastructure legislation
Telecom Eireann always had overflow areas from say North Cork into West Limerick and East Galway in to Roscommon etc. The engineering costs were always much higher but the users got their hinterland on a common rate beyond the county jersey politics. This was the correct stance in my opinion; why should Tuam to Claremorris be a long distance call?
However the real issues is not phone rates but instalation and repair costs on ‘the last mile of cable’ from the road to the house and it is not just telacoms but also electricitiy.
