BT Ireland connects first customer on SIRO network

Friday 14 July 2017 | 09:16 CET | News
BT Ireland announced the completion of its first live trial for access to Siro's fibre network, as agreed at the end of 2016. The trial connected a customer's home in Carrigaline, Co. Cork to the gigabit broadband service. BT complements its own local and global fibre network with last-mile fibre access services from several other communications companies, the Government Metropolitan Area Networks and now SIRO. SIRO's network passes over 80,000 premises in 17 towns, and the company is expanding its footprint with the aim of reaching 500,000 homes and businesses across 50 regional towns.
