Mid-West wireless broadband provider, BBnet, has launched a new FibreAir dedicated Internet service in Shannon, Co Clare, involving a quarter of a million euro investment by the Company. The new service will enable businesses in the greater Shannon area to avail of dedicated, Internet connections from 10Mb to 100Mb.The introduction of this new high-speed FibreAir product solidifies what Bbnet said was a commitment to bringing a dedicated Internet service to businesses throughout the Mid-West region.
Backhauled onto its existing Tier1 Fibre network at Westpark Business Campus in Shannon, the FibreAir service offers businesses secure Internet connections with scalable bandwidths from 10Mb up to 100Mb, a dedicated service to each customer with no sharing of bandwidths, and a fully synchronous service with the same upload and download.
Speaking at the launch, BBnet managing director Barry O’Halloran (pictured, left) added: “The provision of competitively priced high bandwidth, which is totally independent of the incumbent provider’s network and infrastructure, will greatly assist companies that are migrating to cloud computing and that need greater upload speed. With more and more video conferencing applications and remote connectivity being used within the business setting, to and from headquarters, there is a widespread interest in upgrading to higher-speed services. Using a combination of fibre and the latest wireless technologies, this new service will facilitate the migration to higher capacity services and accelerate the migration from copper-based networks.”
