Wireless broadband extended to Kildare

27 Jun 2005

An alternative broadband provider has revealed it has deployed a number of wireless-high sites throughout Kildare, covering key towns such as Maynooth, Leixlip and Celbridge.

As a result, Dublin-headquartered Ice Communications will offer internet access and IP services to both the business and residential market in Kildare with prices starting at €37.99 a month with no line rental required.

Ice is currently offering wireless broadband services to homes and businesses in Meath, north Dublin and south Dublin.

The company completed a pilot scheme for broadband provision in Ashbourne, County Meath last year and since then is planning to extend its coverage of the greater Dublin region over the next two quarters.

The company, which currently employs 10 people, is planning to double its workforce in the coming months to cope with the increased services.

We are constantly extending our network so more towns in Ireland can experience the benefits of wireless broadband internet access. Our aim is to provide wire-free broadband to areas which have little or no broadband connectivity,” said director Brian Doherty.
