Broadband lobby group, IrelandOffline, reforms
Following intensive internal discussion, a number of former members of the broadband lobby group, IrelandOffline, have opted to reform.
Interim spokesperson Eamonn Wallace explained that the group were bewildered at recent National Broadband Scheme developments, including the recent news of the national contract being awarded to a 3G mobile company with a history of poor technology and customer service. Wallace cited the lack of meaningful development in broadband availability since IrelandOffline disbanded last year. Furthermore we believe there is a looming crisis in the provision of broadband in this country and we also aim to address this issue, complacency is not an option.
“Drawing on the experience of previous committee members and chairmen, IrelandOffline aims to be a neutral body campaigning for the provision of timely and accurate information in the field of telecommunications”, explained Wallace.
IrelandOffline wishes to build on the successful, hard work of previous committees and members, and hopes to have formal elections in the New Year.
