4 Jul 2014

Residents in parts of Dublin, Ireland will soon benefit from ultra-high speed 1Gbps fibre broadband services, following a move by Irish internet service provider (ISP) Magnet Networks. Under its ‘Project Leap’ programme, Magnet is rolling out fibre broadband to 120 apartments in the district of Stillorgan, promising to deliver end users a maximum 1Gbps symmetrical service. Claiming a ‘first’ for the country, Clonshaugh-based Magnet Networks says that it sees Project Leap as a way of transferring its ‘leading-edge capability and corporate fibre horsepower in the business sector to the residential environment’. Magnet is an ISP with operations in Ireland and the United Kingdom offering fibre connectivity and cloud telecoms. Its national infrastructure is reinforced by its sister company Hibernia Networks’ global transit fibre infrastructure.
