It will be five years before some premises in Co Monaghan are connected to high-speed internet under the National Broadband Plan.
While 3,100 premises have been connected in Monaghan Town, other areas are facing waits until December of 2026 to be connected.
Councillors agreed to contact SIRO in an effort to speed up broadband connectivity in the MD.
At a recent Carrickmacross-Castleblayney MD meeting, it was revealed a large number of people in the area will face waits of up to five years to get connected under the National Broadband Plan.
It's anticipated that premises in Carrickmacross will be connected by June, 2023, while it will be December of 2026 before Castleblayney is connected.
Councillor Colm Carthy said the delays are "unacceptable" and voiced concern that more delays could "creep in".
While Aiden Campbell commended the Broadband Connection Points and Wifi4Eu scheme, he asked what could be done to speed up the works and asked if SIRO should be contacted.
SIRO is a joint venture between ESB and Vodafone that has been bringing broadband into towns and urban areas.
Monaghan's Broadband Officer, John McArdle, said he would support engaging with SIRO "if it was possible to bring them into Carrickmacross or Castleblayney to advance high speed broadband".
He says they were "due to come into Monaghan Town as far back as 2017 but that never materialised".
He added there has "never been any clarity around why this was delayed and when it is likely to happen, if at all".
Aiden Campbell proposed that the MD write to SIRO, seeking a meeting and the possible inclusion of the MD in its broadband rollout.]
