ALTO has appeared in today’s Irish Times commenting on the Government’s new broadband policy document.

“ALTO broadly welcomes the proposals in the government’s broadband policy document.  However we feel that this is a missed opportunity by the Minister to commit to using his powers to set definite timelines and policy direction for ComReg so that the market is more successfully regulated.  The now imperative investment by alternative telcos in next generation networks will not come about until the market is more conducive to fairer competition.”

The Next Generation broadband Policy Paper is available at the following link:
