First Sligo Premises Connected to NBI Broadband

Long-standing Fastcom customer Feehily’s Florist is the first premises in Sligo to be connected to the National Broadband Plan (NBI) network, the new future-proof, high-speed Fibre-to-the-Home broadband.

Feehily’s Florist, an award-winning floristry based in Co. Sligo, runs its business from its large showroom in Carraroe. Proudly labelled “the hive of creativity”, its Carraroe premises is buzzing with activity, hosting evening classes and wedding consultations in addition to selling flowers and floral accessories. It is also home to Feehily’s creative team of florists who utilise their magic to create works of art.

Michael Feehily, Owner of Feehily’s Florist, describes how instrumental high-speed broadband is in the running of a successful, award-winning business:

“Like businesses all over Ireland, we are now heavily reliant on broadband and what it does for our business day-to-day. We are a long-standing customer of Fastcom and are delighted that NBI Gigabit fibre became available to us.

We are thrilled to be connected to NBI broadband through Fastcom. High-speed fibre has had a really positive effect on our company. The entire connecting process was simple also. The fast connection that Fastcom is providing over the NBI network is a game-changer for a company like ours that is now accepting online orders around-the-clock. It’s also great knowing we can rely on consistent broadband connection.”
