Increased speeds

In addition to the launch of a new special offers, UPC has also enhanced its broadband speeds with their max download speed increasing from 200Mb to 240Mb. The new max download speed is 140Mb faster than eircom, Sky and Vodafone’s current top speeds.

Campbell Scott, Portfolio Product Manager, UPC Ireland said: “Today’s launch of the fastest Broadband product in Ireland and our on-going commitment to continually deliver the best performing broadband by a distance, is grounded in the changing needs of the Irish Consumer. Our research shows that broadband device usage is doubling every three years in Ireland. The actual Broadband speed performance delivered by providers is therefore becoming increasingly important and there is a real lack of transparency in the market.“

The new deals are available for limited period only, with each of the special offers set to end on the 28th February 2015.
