UPC Ireland upgrades new areas

Liberty Global-owned cable operator UPC Ireland has upgraded its network to deliver digital TV and ultra-fast broadband services across southern County Meath and northern County Dublin.

Advanced  digital services will be switched on in Donabate on May 6, followed by the towns of Ratoath on May 12, Ashbourne on May 19 and Lusk on May 26.

Households in these areas will be able to access connected entertainment services including the Horizon TV service and internet speeds of up to 240Mbps. UPC will also make premium service MyPrime available to Horizon customers, as well as the Horizon Go TV everywhere service.

“We are delighted to offer customers access to one of Ireland‟s fastest residential broadband service at 240Mbps speeds. At this year‟s Switcher Broadband Awards, UPC was voted Best Broadband Provider for a second year in a row and picked up four awards which reveal what Irish customers think about their broadband provider, from speeds, reliability to customer service and support,” said Conor Harrison, vice-president of network services at UPC Ireland.

“As well as high speed broadband, we continue to bring new products to the market, creating exciting new services for our customers. For instance we expanded our Horizon TV service to offer My Prime which includes the very best Irish and international content. This provides thousands of hours of entertainment which can be accessed over multiple devices via the Horizon TV HD+ box and the Horizon Go App, both in and out of UPC customer‟s homes, at no extra cost. We remain focused on delivering extraordinary home entertainment, an exceptional customer experience and the most innovative digital services in the industry.”
