Today, Munster broadband provider, Nova Broadband has announced that it will look to begin phase two of its national expansion plan in 2017.

As a result, the company hopes to create up to 20 new jobs in the next 24 months as they continue to expand into other counties. Already, Nova Broadband has had to relocate to bigger premises as a result of its growth over the last 12 months.

The Cork-based broadband company has seen a huge increase in its customer base, in particular in rural based areas, and as a result has increased staff by 25%.

Last year, due to popular demand, Nova Broadband invested over €250,000 into broadening its customer base into areas such as Limerick, Tipperary, Kilkenny, Laois and Waterford.

This expansion is welcome news for rural broadband customers, some of whom have previously been restricted to fixed line, 3G and satellite broadband.

Speaking about their growth, CEO of Nova Broadband, Dave Mc Donald said “Our reputation as the number one rated broadband provider and experts when it comes to rural broadband in particular is spreading and as a result our customer levels are soaring through the roof.

“Since expanding up the country we have received a huge response and got many new customers who before now had little to no access to good broadband, which in this day and age I feel is completely unacceptable. We are delighted to be able to help these people and bring our number one rated service nationwide.”
