By the end of 2006 Digiweb’s market leading Metro product will be available to over 65% of the entire Irish population. Digiweb has always believed that building and owning a network entirely independent of the incumbent operator, eircom, would lead to greater choice and flexibility to the Irish consumer and ultimately lower prices and this is shown in today’s announcement.
Commenting on the announcement, John Quinn, Head of Strategic Development at Digiweb stated “There is simply no other product available in the Irish marketplace today that comes anywhere near Digiweb’s new offering and this shows the value of true platform competition in any market. As Metro rapidly sweeps across the Country people are being offered a real choice to legacy telephone providers. In keeping with our principles of simplicity, there are no catches, hidden charges or limited offers associated with this new product. As part of today’s announcement I am also delighted to announce that Metro is now live in Naas, Portlaoise, Athlone, Kilkenny and Letterkenny. “
