No chance for my corner of Inishowen, as far as I can see, until Ryanair launches pig-powered flights. A few towns are enabled but since my nearest exchange is in a village which is little more than a crossroads, I don't hold out any hope. Satellite is unaffordable and mobile signal is unavailable. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just run a few cables over the border? Incidentally, why CAN'T we just run a few cables over the border?

looking at the updated list of providers on the Dept website, they list a provider called Real Broadband in Tralee who seem to have a licence to operate yet they are not even providing broadband as of 13/6/08. I called their office and was told by a women that they were looking to be up and running by the end of the year. How can a provider who does not have any present coverage be allowed to get inclusion on the broadband map. This broadband scheme stinks

Cool maps very handy, thanks Damien. Is there any plans to do a nice map showing where UPC (ntl/chorus) have cable broadband coverage, there coverage doesn't seem to be as widespread as it should be and there website is painful to check for coverage in different towns. Also would love to see daft.ie include something like this, for me broadband is essential and when looking for a house to lease, rent or buy knowing what broadband is available is very important.
