The 2016 National Broadband Scheme (2016 NBS) is consistent with the requirements of the European Commission’s Broadband Guidelines and requires transparency in the investment of public funding for broadband projects. The term transparency applies not only to the sound administrative management and record keeping in relation to the 2016 NBS and the projects implemented under it but also in relation to the publication of specific information about the State aid scheme and its projects.
