Dickson Encourages Project Stratum Roll-Out
On the 14th April, East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, spoke at the Economy Committee in relation to Project Stratum.
Project Stratum aims to improve broadband connectivity by extending Next Generation Access (NGA) broadband infrastructure to premises across Northern Ireland that cannot yet access NGA broadband services.
Having asked several pertinent questions during the committee meeting, Mr Dickson remarked: “Connectivity has never been so important, and for those living in rural parts of Northern Ireland, this project will be of particular benefit to you – consequently, I encourage you to follow the progress of the roll-out via Hyperfast NI’s website.”
Project Stratum represents an investment of £150m by the Department for the Economy (DfE) and £15m by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA).
