Ennis welcomes super-fast broadband for Atticall area

17 August, 2018 - by Sinéad Ennis


Sinn Féin MLA Sinéad Ennis has welcomed the completion of super-fast broadband in the Atticall area of South Down.

Sinéad Ennis said:

“I am delighted that BT have completed the upgrade of the broadband network in the Atticall area.

“Atticall is an extremely rural part of the Mournes so the fact that super-fast broadband will be available in around 90 premises will be a huge boost for local homes and businesses in places such as Tievedoo, Tullamona, St Patrick's Terrace, Atticall Road, Ballymageough Road, Livings Road, Bog road and Tullyframe Road.

Councillor Sean Doran added:

“When Sinead Ennis and I were canvassing in the Mournes broadband was the major issue which people were concerned about especially for children doing homework and studying and also businesses.

“Chris Hazzard, Sinead and myself have worked tirelessly to bring this to fruition and welcome that BT have listened to our concerns.

“Residents should be soon receiving letters to notify them of this system and a list off communication providers is available and people can check if and what they can get at www.nibroadband.com.”
