Boyle is among a number of towns nationwide that will be included in Eir’s Fibre Optic broadband roll out, giving speeds of 10,000mbps.
The €1.4bn investment plan over the next four years will see broadband speeds brought to Boyle that are way in excess of those available at present.
The new investment plan will commence as soon as Eir has completed the build out of rural broadband to 4,600 homes and businesses across the Roscommon Galway area, which will be completed by June of this year.
The news has been welcomed by Deputy Denis Naughten who said ” This investment by Eir will ensure that the local businesses in these towns are future proofed for broadband needs for generations to come”.
“Not only is this investment a boost to local towns but I believe it will spur on other broadband companies to build fibre networks in these towns also”.
The news has also been welcomed by Brian Nerney Chairman of Boyle Town Team.
“Boyle Town Team has been campaigning for a number of years to get high speed Fibre Optic broadband for the town.”
” We had written to both Eir and Vodafone and also made representation to Deputy Naughten when he was Minister for Communications.”
“This news, in addition to the plans under Boyle 2040, will now pave the way for Boyle to be able to accomodate large scale businesses that would have previously by passed the town for larger urban centres with faster connectivity”, Brian concluded.
