Pure Telecom targeting 15,000 new broadband customers
News follows launch of ‘broadband only’ service and €20 million deal with eircom
Pure Telecom hopes to gain 15,000 new customers over the next year thanks to a €2 million investment.
The Irish telecoms company is aiming for significant growth in its residential and business customer base, and hopes to increase customers from 30,000 to 45,000 over the next year, yielding additional revenues of approximately €6.5 million.
30 jobs will also be created over the next two years as part of the investment.
Pure Telecom recently signed a two-year deal with eircom Wholesale worth €20 million, which gives Pure Telecom customers access to eircom’s high speed fibre broadband network. The telecoms company can also provide access to other networks, including BT and Verizon.
The Irish-owned telecoms company will aim to secure approximately two thirds of its new customers from this new Purely Broadband service. This broadband-only service allows customers without a landline to access high speed fibre broadband up to 100Mbps with no download limits and no landline charges.
Speaking about the announcement, Paul Connell, director, Pure Telecom said: “We’ve achieved consistent year-on-year growth and this announcement is a statement of our ambition to grow our business very strongly.
“We’re transforming people’s expectations about the level of customer service they should expect from their telecoms services provider.
We provide a very simple mix of a very responsive service, together with the best possible telecoms solution for each individual customer.
“We have the huge advantage of not physically owning our own network, which means that we can effectively act as a telecoms broker, not constrained by any single network.”
