Over 26,000 Kerry premises without access to high-speed broadband

There are currently 26,775 premises without access to high-speed broadband in Kerry.

This represents 30% of the total number of premises in the county.

The figures were presented at a recent online briefing of Kerry County Council.

National Broadband Ireland has carried out surveys in the Tralee and Killarney areas; these will provide a detailed fibre network design.

The townlands around Tralee are now at design stage and it’s expected the builds for these areas will begin in mid-2021.
