With its New POP Sites Airfibre Has Dublin (and beyond) Covered
New Points of Presence (POP) Sites provide 90%+ network coverage of the Greater Dublin Area and enable Airfibre´s communications services to be delivered as far out as Kildare, Meath and Mullingar…
With the addition of new POP sites in Dublin 2, Park West and Saggart, Airfibre is now offering its ‘Fibre Equivalent’ Internet and leased line services to customers across the entire Greater Dublin area and at the same has extended its reach to Kildare, Meath and potentially Mullingar.
Investment by Airfibre in its core network architecture has been in response to customer demand, which identified dark spots for the company where it was previously unable to deliver service. Airfibre is now targeting to increase its customer base in strategically important industrial and business parks.
In particular Airfibre is seeking to grow its customer footprint in the Kilcarberry, City West, Magna and Greenouge Business parks as well as provide coverage for potential customers in Naas, Newbridge and Maynooth.
Commenting upon the expansion, John Earley, CEO said, “With more than 70 business customers in Dublin, Airfibre has established a sound business case for premium Internet and Leased Line services. The addition of these new POP sites means that we can increasingly say ‘yes’ to customers seeking alternatives to expensive services provided by expensive legacy Telcos as well as customers that want to move away from inferior wireless operators”.
Accentuating Airfibre´s wireless advantage, Earley was keen to stress that the company´s services are supplied exclusively to B2B customers and are sold subject to a 99.95% Service Level Agreement. Typically operating at data rates up to 100Mbps, capacity of up to 1Gbps is possible with all circuits being fully symmetrical and uncontended.
In line with its general business expansion, Airfibre is recruiting technical and sales personnel and has made a commitment to ensuring that all of its engineers complete ‘mast’ and ‘working at height’ accreditation.
“It is important to us,” continued Earley, “that we retain independence from third party suppliers and sub-contractors in order that we can deal directly with any problems that arise from time-to-time.”
