Virgin Media Ireland has announced a network deal with SIRO whereby the former will be able to offer what it termed ‘a full range of services’ to more than 450,000 currently enabled SIRO premises across the country. In a press release, Virgin Media Ireland noted that it already offers gigabit speeds to one million premises across Virgin’s own super-fast network, but said the expansion of coverage by using the SIRO network will further drive competition.
Commenting, Tony Hanway, Virgin Media Ireland’s CEO, said: ‘At Virgin Media we are always pushing the boundaries of speed and service delivery for our customers. Today’s announcement increases our network reach to 70% of all the premises in Ireland. Our new partnership with SIRO means we will be offering our market-leading ultrafast broadband and TV services to more Irish consumers and businesses than ever before.’
