Communications company AirSpeed Telecom announced yesterday that it will invest €1.5 million into its network facilities across Ireland which will allow the delivery of multi-Gb broadband.

As part of the rollout, AirSpeed also signed a deal with forestry organisation Coillte to deliver 10Gb high speed services from Coillte’s fibre-enabled tower on Threerock Mountain.

Liam O’Kelly, Managing Director of AirSpeed, commented: “As a telecommunications company, it is essential that we are at the cutting edge of technology in this sector, so we run a continual programme of investment to improve resilience, increase speed and implement new networking technologies.

Our customers are increasingly looking for scalability and resilient connectivity and because we aren’t a single technology provider – we use fibre, DSL and radio – we can deliver customers technology resilience without them needing to use a separate carrier.

“This €1.5 million investment underpins our commitment to our customer base and also helps us deliver strong Service Level Agreements.”

AirSpeed employs 47 people in Dublin, Cork and Belfast and their clients include RTÉ, TG4, HEANet, Dairygold, Irish Distillers, United Drug, Eurolink and Vhi Healthcare.
