Lol. And we won't even own the network at the end. A joke.
It's almost as if the whole thing was gamed from the beginning. It's almost as if certain parties will benefit. It's almost as if a tribunal will be needed in the future. It's almost as if the public are being screwed again...
It's like.. a department captured by its own incompetence. Let's do a bidding process! With one bidder! Who has never built broadband networks! And they own it and might flip it! Let's do eircom all over again!
"but we have careful checks in the contract"! That will be a secret contract! Because we spent years fighting in the courts against contract transparency in the courts! Against you Gavin! And where will the 3 billion go? Who knows! Maybe to companies! Owned by certain people!
We must deliver broadband! To the plain people of Ireland! At any cost! Even so that we don't own the network! And the provider can increase prices in the future! When they wish!
And people will be doubly screwed! Paying for the network! And then paying again on their broadband bills! But it's good EBITDA! For private equity! Backed by wealthy individuals! Whose identity remains unknown!
One of the key things for many business people to ask is "how do I extract money from the State?". Why? Because countries are the biggest purchasers of goods and services. Exclusive contractual arrangements on exclusive fixed assets in countries are equally lucrative.
