Some 105 rural locations across Mayo are set to benefit under a new broadband strategy.
The strategy will see access to high speed broadband in rural Ireland greatly increased.
Altogether, 1,000 rural communities across the country have been targeted for improved connections.
An Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the scheme is a “highly ambitious project to bring fibre broadband to rural communities”.
“[It] offers great potential to Mayo,” continued Mr Kenny. “It aims to overcome the absence of high speed broadband in rural communities and serve as an important tool for job creation.”
