Council urges residents to check their postcode for broadband investment in the Fermanagh Omagh area

10th December 2018

Funding has been made available as a result of the Confidence and Supply Agreement for investment in ultrafast broadband in rural communities which could provide substantial enhancements to Internet connectivity across Northern Ireland including the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council area.

In order to progress the work The Department for Economy wants to confirm that it has correctly identified all those postcodes that contain premises currently unable to access 30 megabits per second (Mbps) broadband services.  The importance of this consultation has been highlighted by the Council’s Broadband Working Group which is keen to ensure that the data held by the Department is an accurate reflection of broadband speeds across the district.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is therefore encouraging residents to check if their postcode has been included on the list. The postcode lists can be found on the nidirect website or are available to view at Council offices at the Townhall and Intec Centre, Enniskillen and the Connect Centre and The Grange, Omagh and local libraries.

If your postcode is not on the list and you are unable to access 30 megabits per second, please contact the Department for the Economy with the property address and postcode by telephoning 028 9052 9352 or email stratum@economy-ni.gov.uk.

All responses must be made to the Department for the Economy by 12 noon, 14 January 2019.
