Northern Ireland: 100% broadband

It seems that BT pulled off the contract in time, and the government now classifies Northern Ireland as 100% broadband, which keeps it well ahead of the Republic and indeed most of the EU in terms of broadband access. Certainly it is good news for the economic infrastructure, but it’s the other softer political factors that are missing. Not least the ongoing democratic deficit. No sign either of the latest government economic plan, three months after it was promised.

Adds: Damien Blake has a Donegal perspective.
