One gigabit speed set for Dundalk

Digiweb has announced the launch of Electric Broadband, a 1 Gigabit broadband service powered by SIRO in Dundalk. Using SIRO’s 100% fibre optic broadband network, Digiweb will offer a number of packages for both residential and business customers in Dundalk, with speeds ranging from 150 Megabits per second (Mbps) to one Gigabit per second (Gbps), and pricing from as little as €45 per month.

SIRO, the open-access wholesale broadband provider, is building a 100% fibre-optic internet network in 50 towns across Ireland, which is different and better than any other broadband infrastructure in Ireland, with no copper connection at any point in the network. SIRO’s Gigabit connectivity, is three times as powerful as the market leading service in Dublin and 10 times as powerful as the market leading service in rural Ireland.

Digiweb’s Electric Broadband will transform the internet experience of SMEs, remote workers and consumers in Dundalk. For example, a high definition film (4GB) takes one hour to download with a 10mbps connection - with Electric Broadband it will take 30 seconds. As a result, Dundalk residents and businesses will be at a competitive advantage over their peers in other towns.

Commenting about the launch in Dundalk, Declan Campbell, Managing Director of Digiweb, said: “This is a different kind of internet and we are delighted to be offering our customers in Dundalk the choice. It will be great to be able to offer customers in these areas SIRO powered broadband packages of up to 1Gbps, enabling us to deliver the people of Dundalk one of the most powerful broadband services available in Ireland. On a number of levels, the introduction of this service will differentiate us from most of the competition. With the quality of service and support Digiweb offer our customer base, this product will set us apart from the market. As one of the first broadband retailers to offer services on the SIRO network, this is the latest milestone as part of our strategy of delivering the best broadband experience in the country.”
