Wednesday, 11 June 2008

Ice Broadband, with the support of Limerick County Council, has launched wireless broadband services with total coverage for the city and county area. Speaking at the launch, Ice Broadband chairman Fran Rooney said Ireland could lead Europe's broadband league and urged local authorities to follow Limerick's example, taking the initiative and working closely with companies that can provide immediate wireless solutions. According to a European Commission report analysing broadband penetration rates amongst member states, Ireland, still below the EU average of 20%, only ranks 14th for broadband penetration levels within Europe, compared to Denmark, the country with strongest broadband penetration at 37.2%.
