BT Ireland and SIRO have a network agreement. This network interconnect agreement, which lays the foundation for all network, systems and commercial activities between the two companies, enables BT to offer its corporate, public sector and wholesale customers access to SIRO’s 1 GB Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) local-access network.
BT has a unique position in the Irish market as a network aggregation service provider, which means that it can complement its own extensive local and global fibre network with last mile fibre access services from several other communications companies, the Government Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs) and now SIRO. This provides BT with widespread availability of access networks upon which it delivers its domestic and global networked IT services and solutions. Communications companies, including rural fixed and wireless broadband providers, can now also benefit from the widest choice and reach of access networks in Ireland through interconnecting its network with SIRO.
enet and SIRO recently announced a ground-breaking network agreement between the two companies. As a result of the partnership, enet will become a SIRO aggregator enabling its customers (over 70 broadband retail service providers) access to SIRO’s 100% fibre-optic network. With SIRO providing the last mile fibre access, enet will integrate this fibre broadband service with the Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), as well as their own national fibre network to offer a full end to end offering to all retail service providers.
The partnership will further stimulate competition in the broadband market by enabling many broadband retailers to target individual SIRO towns or offer services nationally. In the process, more retailers, especially smaller service provider, will have access to Gigabit connectivity. Additionally, because of this agreement, retailer can deliver Fibre to the Building (FTTB) services in a more cost effective manner.
