Carlow Rugby Club Hosts open eir’s Broadband Launch

6th December 2014, 10am to 12 noon

Carlow is currently benefiting from a €5 million investment programme to bring high speed broadband to over 19,000 premises in 10 communities across the county by the end of next year. This investment forms part of a €400 million national broadband upgrade programme for 1.6 million homes and businesses nationwide. So far 11,866 homes and businesses in Carlow can access uncongested high-speed broadband with speeds of up to 100Mb/s.

This investment is already making a huge difference in over one million premises nationwide that have received access to open eir’s Open Access Network. We want you to know more about the areas in Carlow that will be served by this upgrade, when services will come on stream and the benefits it will provide. To help with this we have partnered with Carlow Rugby to provide an important community information day with additional activities for families and children.

Why attend? to find out more about how high speed broadband is helping businesses move online to capture new markets and grow, how high speed broadband is enriching the learning experience for students in the classroom and how high speed broadband facilitates greater teleworking plus deliver a much broader range of entertainment options into the home.

What else is happening? Meet and greet with rugby stars John Hayes, Reggie Corrigan and Fiona Coghlan. Family fun including inflatable tackle and target cages; see how you fair in our online ‘reasonable priced’ courtesy of Xbox, plus movie room and face painting for the little ones. And be in with a chance to win two tickets to the Leinster V Harlequins at the Aviva Stadium on December 13th.

This investment in high speed broadband is a real game changer. We really do hope that you can join us at Carlow Rugby Club to see for yourself the difference this technology will make to you, your business, your family and your local community.
