Sky Fibre Ultra to bring speeds of up to 1Gb to Irish households

Fibre to the Home technology will be used to deliver Ireland’s fastest broadband.

Today Sky Ireland has officially announced the launch of Sky Fibre Ultra which, for only €40 a month, will delivery lightning fast speeds to Irish homes.

The service is currently available to over 400,000 homes, with the continued roll out adding more and more houses to the availability roster each month. Both new and existing Sky customers can make the most of this new product with new customers able to get the Sky TV and Sky Fibre Ultra bundle from €60 per month - combining 1Gb broadband speeds and the best TV experience with Sky Q, the next generation box.

Sky says the super reliable product will enable consumers to share, download and stream without any interruptions or issues at a consistent high speed. They also anticipate that over the next 3 - 5 years over 1 million homes will have access to this product.

“We expect to be offering Sky Fibre Ultra, with speeds up to one gigabit, to more than 1 million homes over the next 3-5 years.”

Talking about the launch of this new product Ann-Marie MacKay, Director of Products and Marketing, Sky Ireland, said: “Sky is delighted to announce the arrival of Sky Fibre Ultra, offering the fastest broadband speeds available in the country, to the widest possible footprint. With Sky Fibre Ultra, customers can get speeds that are up to ten times faster than our standard fibre broadband, meaning it’s perfect for people that want instant, multi-device access for everything from boxset binging to non-stop gaming.”

Eoin Clarke, Managing Director of Switcher.ie, said the introduction of this new product is welcomed news for those suffering with slow broadband speeds.

“Research from Switcher.ie earlier this year revealed that two-thirds of consumers are still getting speeds below 30Mbps. These sluggish speeds can cause huge frustration for consumers with simple things like streaming content, working from home, and keeping in touch with friends and family becoming a daily battle,” said Mr Clarke.

With the product already available at so many premises it is definitely worthwhile looking into whether you can take up this service now if you are unhappy with your current speeds.
