Open-access wholesale broadband provider Siro has announced the appointment of Carnsore Broadband has become its fourth retail partner.
Carnsore Broadband’s Flash Broadband services will be available in Wexford town and later to residents and businesses in Gorey and Enniscorthy, in line with Siro’s phase one network rollout.
Sean Atkinson, chief executive of Siro (pictured), said: “Our partnership with Carnsore Broadband is the latest example of how Siro is transforming the broadband experience across Ireland. Not only are we delivering Gigabit connectivity to 50 towns across the country, but we are also giving regional broadband providers like Carnsore Broadband the firepower to compete with national broadband providers.”
Barry Darmody, managing director of Carnsore Broadband, added: “As a Wexford born-and-bred company, we have seen first-hand how vital Internet access has become for the personal and professional lives of everyone in the county. By offering access to Siro’s unrivalled broadband network, we will literally change people’s lives, whether it’s giving a business the foundation to grow its customer base by selling online or giving students access to the best educational resources on the Internet.”
Using the existing ESB network, Siro is delivered by fibre optic cables all the way to the building, delivering 1Gb/s download and upload speeds – three times faster than the best service available in Dublin and over 10 times the best service available in the rest of Ireland.
Carnsore Broadband originally began as a community project in Carne in 2006. The company’s business clients now include businesses in Wexford such as Done Deal, Hertz, Maldron Hotels & Partners and South East Radio.
Siro expects that by the end of 2016, services will be live or construction work will be underway in 17 towns including Dundalk, Cavan, Carrigaline, Sligo, Letterkenny, Tralee, Wexford, Drogheda, Westport, Portlaoise, Castlebar, Mullingar, Newbridge, Ennis, Ratheniska, Carlow and Skibbereen.
