Brid Smith TD on Broadband Services, Dáil cmmtte 27.9.17

SEXISM ALIVE AND WELL on the committee I sit on in the Dáil. I had to fight for my turn to speak today. I spoke on the fiasco BROADBAND SERVICES in this country. Why is the delivery of broadband such a ‘cock-up’? Because it relies on privatised services and the ‘market’. Why don’t we have the state deliverying and owning essential services, like when the ESB (entirely state-owned at the time) brought electricity to entire the country? STUFF THE MARKET, it serves only the millionaires and fails the people.
