One-quarter of Ireland’s rural population would be forced to move to urban locations if it wasn’t for broadband, and as many as one-in-five say they still can’t access even the most basic broadband services.  These findings and more are contained in Connected Futures: Bridging Ireland’s Urban-Rural Divide, a research report launched today by Vodafone Ireland and produced by Amárach. The study is based on the views and experiences of 1,000 adults living in rural Ireland, as well as a survey of 100 micro businesses located outside Ireland’s five main cities.
