Poor broadband hits rural growth

Deirdre Frost of the WDC was interviewed as part of the story Poor broadband hits rural growth aired on RTE’s Morning Ireland on Wednesday Morning (17th September 2014).

Some interesting case-studies on the innovative use of broadband in the farming sector, are highlighted, for example the use of video to participate in an online mart based in Ballina Co.Mayo and the use of CCTV to monitor stock remotely. These innovative practices are being developed despite the poor broadband service levels available in rural areas.
