Budget Submission 2022

August 30, 2021

The Telecommunications Industry Ireland 2023 Budget submission's main recommendations are:

  • Increase network energy resilience
  • Provide tax relief for cost of spectrum
  • Reduce VAT rate for internet access services
  • Address structural connectivity shortages
  • Support telecommunications R&D
  • Counter online disinformation on 5G
  • Combat increased cybersecurity threats
  • Bridge the digital divide


It was also recommended that Ireland’s telecommunications networks should be deemed a priority in the unlikely event that there is electricity rationing. This is because they are a critical piece of national infrastructure, playing a vital role in crisis situations and underpinning the wider economy.
