Alan Kelly TD, Minister for Public & Commuter Transport has welcomed
the news from Minster Pat Rabbitte that the final phase of the
national roll out of 100mps will see the second-level schools in
Tipperary connected except for one school which for a number of
reasons will see a separate mini-competition organised.
Minister Kelly said “This is very welcome news for the schools. The
national roll-out of broadband connectivity will see all second level
schools in the country having industrial broadband before the start on
the school year in September. Completing the national programme will
mean that all our secondary schools will have be equipped with
top-of-the range future proofed broadband, enabling and motivating
schools to utilise the teaching and learning opportunities that the
Minister Kelly concluded “A modern broadband infrastructure in all our
secondary schools enhances the education of our young people”.
