Tramore Eircom high-speed broadband obstacle cleared.
Previously Tramore has had some issues with Eircom’s high speed broadband, However, the problems preventing Eircom from rolling out high speed broadband to parts of Tramore especially the town centre have now seemingly been resolved.
Earlier this year Fine Gael TD, John Deasy took the matter up with Eircom in early April after being contacted by a number of businesses in the Main street area who were complaining and wanted improved internet speeds.
Tramore is included in Eircom’s superfast fibre broadband programme which is due to be delivered in July 2016. However certain areas of tramore have actually been able to get the eFibre broadband since May 2014, whilst in other areas of tramore people can’t seem to get the signal, and are still waiting to be upgraded.
We have heard from another source that the Eircom director of public affairs, Pat Galvin has said to John Deasy that “the final regulatory obstacles relating to the rollout of exchange-based high speed broadband were resolved at the end of last week, June 19th, this means that we can now proceed to connect high speed broadband to the many premises in Tramore town centre which were affected by this issue.
Local businesses say very high-speed broadband will improve their online commercial capacity and will certainly help to attract new ventures to the town centre.
Vodafone and ESB have also already announced the creation of a joint venture company to deliver a 100% fibre-to-the-building broadband network for the first time in Ireland. The open access network, which will be available to all authorised broadband operators in the country, will help to propel Ireland into the ranks of the world’s fastest broadband countries and open up a new world of possibilities for Irish consumers and businesses.
The first 50 towns to get this new service from this Autumn include Monaghan, Portlaoise, Tramore and Athlone.
