ENET forward with the intention to build a budget for rural broadband under the national broadband plan (NBP) without a new partner instead of the energy company SSE.

The Irish independent understands that the consortium has hired a number of senior international experts, operators to oversee the network deployment for rural 542,000 homes and businesses, effectively replacing the role of GPS in the construction of the network.

They include the heads of Rogers, Canada’s largest telecommunications company.

SSE, the UK utilities giant, which joined forces last year with ENET, was to become the main partner of ENET in the network, at an interest rate of NBP ENET, which will be completed in the coming weeks. However, GSP broke up with ENET in recent months announcing its withdrawal in the past two weeks.

In the ENET-GSP the split also led to the cancellation of the plan between the two companies to build a 115,000 fiber broadband connections to nine regional cities in the West of Ireland.

EIR, which was a potential replacement for SSE, not come taking up the role of SHGs in the state support rate.

Last week, the Prime Minister of Ireland, Leo Varadkar, said that the NBP process was still pending in accordance with the established schedule, despite the departure of GSP from the bidding process.

No hiccups, it would mean shovels in the next six months, if the final bid is accepted by the ENET communications Department.

The government still has not indicated how much it expects implementation of the NBP cost, although analysts had expected it to be in the region of €1 billion to €1.5 billion.

If successful in his quest, ENET get a 25-year contract to build and run a wholesale rural broadband network fibre, with the right of ownership on part-time returning to it at the end of a 25-year period.

If he wants to continue the current timeframe that the government has no choice but to accept the offer of ENET, with the other main contenders for the contract came from the process over the past 12 months.

The process should be completed in 2023, with the majority of the rural areas should be connected by 2021.
