Killarney town area to have SIRO within 16 months

Fibre optic broadband will be available in Killarney town by November of next year.

SIRO, a joint venture between ESB and Vodafone, presented their plan to a recent meeting of the Killarney Municipal District.

SIRO uses the existing electrical supply lines to provide an internet connection.

The commercial company is currently surveying the Killarney town area, and plans to have fibre optic connections in place within 16 months.

The first areas in the town to be served will be Rock Road, the town centre, New Road and St Margaret’s Road.

However, SIRO claim rural areas in the county are currently not part of their plan.
