Users of the Internet in Northern Ireland are pretty lucky – that region has become the first in Europe to have 100% broadband coverage. An announcement, made by Enterprise Minister Angela Smith on a visit to the MJM Group, claims that NI has 100% access to high speed internet. This is the result of £10m of European funding.

"This is a significant achievement for Northern Ireland," Minister Angela Smith said.

"Every household, business, school and library in Northern Ireland will be able to access broadband regardless of their location."
