Meteor’s mobile broadband service rocks

13 Mar 2009

Meteor, the Irish mobile operator owned by former fixed line monopoly eircom, says its new mobile broadband internet service, Broadband to Go, has signed up 1,500 customers in the first two weeks since launch. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, the cellco’s Broadband to Go package is initially available to pay-as-you-go and contract (Billpay) customers in Cork City and the larger Dublin regions. Meteor plans to roll out a new, high speed HSDPA network to other major cities and towns by the end of the year providing maximum (theoretical) download speeds of 14.4Mbps. The operator also plans to pilot a maximum 21.1Mbps service on its network by the end of 2009.
