The Newry City Sinn Féin Councillor said that broadband was “an essential utility for households”.



“It is a poor reflection on the state that basic utilities like broadband are still out of reach for rural dwellers and their families in particular,” she commented.

“The recent lockdown and current challenging situation have meant that the internet, which is already a necessary utility in most households, is even more essential,” she insisted.

“For those asked to work from home, for students attempting to complete school or university work, even for the most basic contact with friends and family, the internet has been needed.



“This has exacerbated the frustrations of those for whom broadband is intermittent or non-existent,” she continued.

The local Councillor added, “The awarding of the contract for project stratum is expected to be announced shortly and hopefully some of these issues will be addressed.

“I and my colleagues will continue to work to ensure that the issue of the broadband provision is a key priority and that work begins as soon as is possible.”
