Interesting report from Daily Ireland on broadband access north and south of the border. Northern Ireland has only recently hit the 100% mark whilst the Republic lags at 60%. It also reports that the small town of Carrigtwohill, which is little more than 10 miles from the centre of Cork City is still without broadband access.
