Cable company UPC has announced the roll-out of upgraded services to towns in the midlands, which will bring the company’s high-speed broadband to an extra 45,000 homes. The €15m upgrade will bring UPC’s 30mb broadband, home phone and HD television to the towns and will be completed towards the end of June, though some upgrades are already complete.
The towns being upgraded are Sligo and Mullingar, which are already upgraded; Newbridge, due today; Athlone, scheduled for the 8th June; Carlow, scheduled for the 15th June and Portlaoise, scheduled for 22nd June.
On the roll-out Mark Coan, sales and managing director for UPC said:
“Access to reliable, affordable high speed Broadband and advanced Digital TV is critical for communities right across Ireland and our launch today gives these communities access to the most advanced future proofed network in Ireland.”
UPC recently announced that it would offer 100mb/s broadband from August of this year and is also expanding the HD TV service it already offers.
