High speed Broadband boost for 3 Kildare schools

Three Kildare schools are to receive high speed broadband under a Government scheme according to local Fianna Fáil TD and Minister of State, Áine Brady.

"Coláiste Naomh Mhuire on the Sallins Road in Naas, the Salesian College in Celbridge and Maynooth Post Primary on the Moyglare Road will each receive high speed broadband under the €13 million Broadband to Schools Scheme. The schools will get 100 megabit high speed fibre and wireless broadband."

"The Broadband speeds that will now be available to these schools are the equivalent to the speeds on offer to multinational corporations here."

"I am delighted to see this investment in Kildare schools. The Broadband to Schools scheme will be available to other local secondary schools within the next two years."

"As our economy becomes more high-tech it is vital that students are confident in their use of technology and having these extra facilities at school will assist," concluded Minister Brady.
