“FibrePower your Community” Competition Entries
Following the success of the trial in Belcarra, open eir launched a competition inviting communities across Ireland to outline how being ‘FibrePowered’ would positively impact their lives, their businesses and their homes. The competition was open to communities who had no access to high speed broadband and were waiting the deployment of the National Broadband Plan (NBP).
Entries to the competition have now closed.
In November 2015, Munterconnaught, County Cavan was announced as the winner, and work has commenced rolling out the fibre to the home solution.
All entries to the competition provided valuable information on the realities of living in rural Ireland without broadband. We continue to refer back to them as we continue to plan our rollout, and prepare our tender submission for the NBP.
