Nenagh and Roscrea to be connected to SIRO’s 100% Fibre Optic Gigabit Broadband Network
SIRO outlined the plans at a meeting of Tipperary County Council
Earlier today, SIRO announced at a meeting of Tipperary County Council that it is adding two more towns - Nenagh and Roscrea - to its gigabit broadband network. The two towns join Clonmel, where construction of the network began early in the summer.
The rollout will start in the Abbey Court, Brook Lands and Ormond Drive areas of Nenagh from the beginning of October, and Roscrea will follow in early 2019.
When construction in the three towns is completed approximately 16,000 homes and business premises in Nenagh, Roscrea and Clonmel will have access to SIRO’s 100% fibre-optic broadband network, via SIRO’s retail partners.
SIRO’s Aoife Ni Lochlainn said the rollout will have a “transformational effect” on the digital environment of these three towns, “allowing businesses to compete online with their international peers and helping local entrepreneurs and businesses to bring their ideas to life, trading effortlessly around the world”.
Ni Lochlainn added: “Having the same Gigabit connectivity as a city like Tokyo means that residents in Nenagh, Roscrea and Clonmel will experience the latest advances in online education, entertainment and remote working giving them the opportunity to pursue their dream without leaving their town.”
