Broadband update Athlumney Wood

At the January meeting of the Navan Municipal District meeting I raised the issue of the lack of broadband for Athlumney Wood due to the fact that the cabinet at the entrance had not yet been enabled.
Today I received the following response from Eir in respect of this issue and I hope that this will see this positively resolved.
“Dear councillor,
A number of issues regarding a Wayleave had to be resolved before permission to proceed could be granted. These issues have now been resolved and Eir’s contractor, KNN, should have the written permission required later this week. Once permission is received, work to erect the Fibre Cabinet will commence, expected to be next week.
All Works, ESB connection, Connecting Fibre cable, Copper Cables and testing should be completed within 3 to 4 weeks.
Fibre powered Broadband should therefore be available in this area by Mid-March

  1. I can’t be waiting and waiting. I think I’m just going to have to move to an area with decent coverage already provided. Obviously that email to the councillor is bogus and the dates specified in the letter are provisional and estimates. I was going to set up a new business from home but that will have to wait until I move to a new address but at least the house prices are rising again and the house is close to being out of negative equity. So at least that’s one positive.
