Udarás na Gaeltachta has welcomed the recent upgrade works undertaken by Eircom Wholesale which provides substantially increased bandwidth capability to the exchanges in parts of the Galway Gaeltacht.
The upgrade works have ensured that speeds of between 30Mb and 70Mb can be supplied at a competitive price in An Cheathrú Rua, Casla, Tír an Fhia, Indreabhán, and Maigh Cuilinn. It also ensures that the improved service will be available to businesses in Údarás na Gaeltachta enterprise parks in these areas.
This broadband service will be available from suppliers which provide broadband through the phone line, including Eircom, Vodafone, and BT.
Chief executive of Údarás na Gaeltachta, Stiofán Ó Cúláin, said this was good news for businesses and the community in these areas. “This means that the broadband requirements of the majority of our client companies in these initial areas can now be met," Mr Ó Cúláin added. "I also welcome planned upgrades to other Gaeltacht-based exchanges in the coming months. An tÚdarás will continue in its efforts to ensure that high-speed broadband services, at a competitive prices, are available in its enterprise parks and business units throughout the Gaeltacht.”
