Eircom’s new 24Mbps available to more than half a million homes

28 Jan 2010

Ireland’s former monopoly operator Eircom yesterday launched a 24Mbps residential broadband service, available to more then 550,000 Irish households. The new ‘Eircom Home Turbo’ package, which promises download speeds of up to 24Mbps and up to 768kbps in the uplink, comes with a 75GB download cap and is available to new and existing users for EUR47.99 (USD67.48) per month. Commenting on the new service, Eircom chief executive officer Paul Donovan said: ‘Offering 24Mbps underlines how investment in Eircom’s next-generation network has delivered much faster broadband speeds across the country as demand for these products grows … This is an important first step as the company moves to offer new innovative broadband products that will offer greater speed and capacity for new and existing wholesale and retail customers.’
