Question: Councillor D. Smith
“To ask the Chief Executive for an update on the provision of Broadband to all
homes and properties on the road between Lusk and Skerries?”


The National Broadband Map identifies locations and premises by EIrcode for
delivery of broadband into three different categories. The map is updated on a
quarterly basis by the DCCAE

 AMBER areas – are the target areas for the State Intervention of the
National Broadband Plan. This is the subject of an ongoing procurement

 BLUE areas – where commercial operators are delivering or have
indicated plans to deliver high speed broadband services. Operators are
continuing to enhance their services in these areas to improve access to
high speed broadband.

 LIGHT BLUE areas – areas where eir has committed to commercial rural
deployment plans to rollout high speed broadband to 300,000
premises by the end of 2018.


The Department of Communications, Climate Change & Environment have
overall responsibility for the roll out of the National Broadband Plan
