Wexford Town to be included in Eircom’s new high-speed broadband rollout.

Wexford Town has been named as one of the first 15 towns to receive Eircom’s new high-speed broadband deal.

The company, which recently re-branded itself as Eir, will be rolling out its new 1Gbps fibre connection to fifteen towns at first; before eventually making it available to other parts of the country.

The service, which is called “eir Fibre Extreme”, is being advertised as ‘Ireland’s fastest broadband speed’; giving Internet users the ability to ‘download everything in milliseconds.’

Prices for the new service will start at €30 per month before rising to €67 per-month after four months. Existing Eircom customers will be able to switch over to the new 1Gbps ‘Extreme’ bundle for €67-per-month for six months, with the price rising to €87-per-month thereafter.

It seems as though the town will be spoilt for choice in the near future, as Wexford Town will also been included in the initial roll-out of SIRO, which is a competing high-speed ‘fibre-to-the-building’ service that is being launched by ESB and Vodafone.
