Airwire becomes eighth Siro retail partner
Wholesale broadband provider Siro has announced that Airwire has become its eighth retail partner.
Starting out in 2006 as a small provider in South Co. Galway, Airwire now covers a large portion of the West and Midwest of Ireland spanning across counties Westmeath, Roscommon, Laois, Galway, Mayo and Clare. Airwire will initially offer 100% fibre-optic broadband services powered by Siro in Athlone, Ennis, Limerick and Portlaoise, with more towns added to its rollout over the coming months.
Speaking at the official announcement of the deal Minister for Communications, Climate Action & Environment Denis Naughten said: “It is very encouraging to see fibre-optic broadband services being made available by more companies, with Airwire becoming the latest retail partner to offer services powered by Siro.”
Sean Atkinson, Siro CEO, said: “We’re delighted to unveil Airwire as our latest retail partner, giving residents and businesses more choice to experience Siro’s Gigabit connectivity, which is three times as powerful as the market leading service in Dublin and 10 times as powerful as the average service in Ireland. As our eighth retailer, this Airwire partnership is indicative of how Siro is driving competition in the broadband market, with more partners due to begin offering services over the coming months.”
Martin List-Petersen, CTO, Airwire, added: “We have always believed that people living in regional Ireland should have access to broadband of the same quality available to living in cities. Thanks to Siro, our customers will now be guaranteed the best broadband in the country, delivered at the speed of light, using Siro’s 100% fibre-optic network.”
Siro’s network covers 120,000 premises, with services now live or under construction in 25 towns across the country.
