A second National Broadband-style scheme may be needed to get more homes and businesses up to speeds the EU says are needed to future-proof infrastructure.

At least 100,000 Irish homes that did not qualify for the State-subsidised National Broadband Plan (NBP) have broadband service below the EU's target speed of 100Mbs by 2025.
