UPC launches the fastest fibre broadband in the country

The new service offers unlimited 240 Mbps broadband from today.

UPC HAS LAUNCHED what it claims to be the fastest fibre broadband service available in the country.

The new service will include unlimited 240Mbps fibre powered broadband service which has been made available today.

The service will cost €25 per month initially before increasing to €45 after four months for new customers, and will be available to those who are within the UPC footprint.

In a statement announcing the move, UPC’s Portfolio Product Manager Cambell Scott said that the launch was “grounded in the needs of the Irish consumer.”

“This is all part of our commitment to constant innovation and continually leading the way in broadband to meet the needs of the Irish consumer today and tomorrow,” said Scott.

Earlier last week, UPC announced a price increase to its TV and call services, which will be introduced in February. At the time, a spokesperson for the company said that the change arose “mainly from increased operational costs and revised content and copyright charges from channel and content providers.”

Those affected have or will receive an email telling them how exactly it will impact them.
