BT Ireland signs E-Net deal to expand broadband to the regions

14 Oct 2008

BT Ireland has reportedly signed a EUR1.2 million (USD1.6 million) contract with E-Net, the company which operates the Republic’s fibre-optic Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), to deliver low-cost, high speed bandwidth to the regions. Telecompaper writes that BT Ireland plans to use E-Net’s MANs to launch a range of services, from low-cost Ethernet services at speeds ranging from 10Mbps to 100Mbps, up to Gigabit Ethernet services at speeds of 1Gbps. The expansion deal will increase BT Ireland’s footprint to 94 new towns, with services initially available via the 27 Phase 1 MANs currently installed. This figure could be increased if, as widely anticipated, E-Net is awarded the contract to manage the remaining 66 Phase 2 MANs.
