Broadband network provider SIRO today launched its 100% fibre optic broadband network in Ballina, Co. Mayo. SIRO retailer Fastcom was there to celebrate the launch at the Great National Hotel on the outskirts of Ballina. With the help of a €4 million investment in this crucial infrastructure, SIRO’s broadband network will enable the company to provide world-class connections to more than 3,500 locations around the town. Up to 2Gb broadband will be available in areas including Cluain Na Rí, The Spires, Robin Hill, Church Manor, Healy Terrace, Oakwood Drive and Brae View.
Also in attendance was Ballina Cathaoirleach Councillor Mark Duffy who formally launched the town’s SIRO internet network. He addressed those present by highlighting the need to entice movers to the West. He said:
“Over the last number of years, Ballina has benefitted hugely as people migrate West for a better quality of life. Investment in fibre broadband, like SIRO’s full fibre network, will keep them in Ballina.”
SIRO’s Fibre-to-the-Premises Broadband
The introduction of Fibre-to-the-Premises broadband in Ballina follows SIRO’s announcement in late 2021, in which the company revealed its aspirations to connect 90 other towns and 770,000 locations throughout Ireland by 2026. To build its sustainable, future-proof internet infrastructure, the company will invest more than €1 billion in broadband infrastructure across Ireland. To date, SIRO has expanded to 65 towns, serving nearly one million people and more than 430,000 homes and businesses. Ballina joins a growing list of SIRO-ready locations that include Castlebar, Westport, and Galway in addition to Fastcoms native Sligo, where customers are availing of high-speed 100% fibre-optic broadband for as little as €55pm.
Ballina residents will be able to order SIRO’s broadband at the beginning of September. The network rollout is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year. Do you live in Ballina and are interested in getting SIRO broadband? Register to be notified when your area becomes SIRO-ready.
