Designing, building and operating the largest ever State-led investment in a wholesale telecoms network.

As the principal investor in National Broadband Ireland (NBI), Granahan McCourt is spearheading the biggest Public Private Partnership in European telecommunications, delivering the Government of Ireland's €5.7 billion National Broadband Plan.

As one of the largest and most complex Fibre-to-the-Premises rollouts ever undertaken, the project was awarded c. €3 billion of State aid from the European Commission.

Spanning 96% of the country's land mass, the project will connect over 1.1 million people across every county in Ireland, transforming the country's connectivity landscape to become the first European country to provide high-speed broadband to 100% of the population and leading the EU's Gigabit 2030.

"Across almost all developed countries, what we see today is a digital divide, whereby certain urban areas have an incredible advantage with access to connectivity and digital services. For too long, underserved areas have been denied.
