Written Answers. - Telecommunications Services.

Mr. Kehoe asked the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources the percentage of Wexford townlands connected to Broadband and which have broadband available to them. [23033/06]

[1277]   Mr. N. Dempsey: The provision of telecommunications services, including broadband, is a matter in the first instance for the private sector companies operating in a fully liberalised market, regulated by the independent Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg).

My Department’s website www.broad- band.gov.ie gives full details of broadband availability in all areas, including ADSL, cable, fibre, satellite and fixed wireless. The website also lists prices of the various service levels on offer and contact details for each service provider.
