Generating the Gigabit Society in Cork - Launch of SIRO Gigabit Broadband Network
Cork Chamber will join forces with SIRO for the launch of the Gigabit Broadband Network in Cork by An Tánaiste, Mr Simon Coveney TD on Monday 17th September at 7.30am in the Clayton Hotel Cork City.
Gigabit Connectivity is coming to Cork and it’s important that the business community in Cork know and understand the opportunities and implications of this for the region.  Sean Atkinson, CEO of SIRO will outline the plan for broadband connectivity in Cork and we will have a panel of expert speakers on the day, as well as plenty of opportunity for you to be part of the national conversation on connectivity and ask the experts any of those burning questions.

SIRO is Ireland’s new National Telecoms Infrastructure brought to you by ESB and Vodafone. Its 100% Fibre-to-the-Building technology is recognised as the gold standard for broadband connectivity internationally.

The SIRO open access broadband network will give Cork businesses access to speeds of 1 gigabit per second, revolutionising how they experience broadband and future-proofing Cork for digital innovation for decades to come.
