THE MORE THAN 500,000 homes and businesses awaiting a decision on the National Broadband Plan (NBP) will have to wait a little longer.
While a decision on whether to proceed with plan was due before Easter, Communications Minister Richard Bruton confirmed today that it will not be discussed by cabinet tomorrow, although he insisted that a decision won’t be dragged out.
