Telecommunications provider eir has this week shared details of its mobile network transformation programme currently taking place across County Roscommon.
The company says it’s investing €150 million in the transformation of its mobile network and claims the programme has seen mobile coverage surpass 99 per cent of the geography of County Roscommon.
A statement from the company read: “In Roscommon the ongoing transformation programme has seen mobile coverage surpassing 99 per cent of the geography of the county. Towns and villages including Ballaghaderreen, Ballinlough, Boyle, Cornafulla, Cortober, Curraghboy, Lugboy, Monksland, Rooskey and Roscommon can now benefit”.
The company also revealed that mobile date usage in the county had increased by 45 per cent in the last year.
Susan Brady, eir’s Managing Director of Consumer and Small Business: “We are rapidly transforming our mobile network across Roscommon with 15 new network sites developed over the last 12 months, to ensure wherever our customers travel, whatever their connectivity needs, they always remain connected.
“Independent testing of eir’s mobile network has resulted in eir being certified as having the best available 4G and 5G networks in the country, and we are extremely proud that our network is powered by 100 per cent green energy; meaning we can stay connected while knowing that we are not impacting our environment”.
