    This would be great news.

    Fastned like the forecourt layout, which needs a bit more space. So I think they'd have more success with service stations, but they're off doing their own thing

    It'd be great if they partnered with Aldi or Super Valu or another supermarket who already has a nationwide network of locations with parking. But I'm not sure that'll suit Fastned

    If the Govt are serious about EVs then they should be sending a big chief over to Fastnet and making it clear that Ireland is VERY open for business....

    Need seriously professional operators in the Irish market.

    Ecars isn't really up for the job....

    Need another player to compete with Easygo and/or push Easygo along to better things

    Fastned's Netherlands business was built on the back of a competitive bidding process for concessions at state service stations. We've got 6 of them, 3 Applegreen, and 3 operated by CircleK.

    The government has so far been very clear on providing diddly squat when it comes to incentivising the operation of charging networks as a public service.

    I see they're using the unionists map of Ireland 😂

    At this rate NI is going to have a better network than ROI soon
