Rollout of National Broadband Plan to be delayed again

The rollout of the National Broadband Plan will be delayed again as TDs look at reviewing how the contract was awarded.

The government hoped to sign a contract with the preferred bidder, Granahan McCourt, in time for an announcement at this week's National Ploughing Championship.

Minister for Communications, Richard Bruton, says the contract process cannot be re-started though as suggested by some Dáil members.
