Council to conduct broadband survey throughout county

high speed broadbandDonegal County Council is currently conducting a survey on broadband availability throughout Donegal.

The Authority says it continues to lobby the government for more investment in broadband in both urban and rural areas of Donegal.

Donegal County Council points out that access to quality High Speed Broadband is a known indicator of socio-economic development and growth, and is an absolute necessity for attracting inward investment.

In a statement it says that given the other challenges which Donegal faces in terms of employment creation, the widespread availability of high speed broadband is especially critical.

The authority says that there have been significant advances in recent years but more investment is required to provide high speed broadband services countywide.

To support these efforts the Council is collecting information on current broadband availability which will be mapped and presented to Government.

The public is being asked to complete an online survey - a link to the survey is available HERE
