SIRO’s Full Fibre Broadband On The Way To Claremorris

SIRO, Ireland’s leading 100% fibre broadband operator, has announced the arrival of its network in Claremorris, with work now underway to build its network across the town. Claremorris will be the fourth Mayo town to benefit from SIRO’s future-proofed technology, joining the towns of Ballina, Westport and Castlebar which already enjoy SIRO’s full fibre network. SIRO build works commenced in recent weeks and are expected to be completed over the course of 2024, with homeowners and businesses being able to order services later this year.

SIRO is targeting 1,500 homes and businesses in Claremorris, bringing the total number of premises reached by SIRO in Mayo to over 8,700, with Ballina, Westport and Castlebar already part of the SIRO network. The announcement was made as part of a presentation by senior SIRO representatives to the monthly meeting of Claremorris Swinford Municipal District  on Wednesday. Cathaoirleach of Claremorris-Swinford Municipal District Sinn Fein Councillor Gerry Murray welcomed the SIRO representatives and their announcement on Claremorris, whilst acknowledging the importance of high-quality fibre connectivity for all Mayo homes and businesses.

Areas in Claremorris which will benefit from the roll out include (but are not limited to): Claremont, Lisnaboley, Clare, Carrowbeg East, and Mayfields.

SIRO first rolled out to Castlebar in 2017, reaching over 3,000 premises in the town. Since then, SIRO has been steadily rolling out its network across the county. In Westport and Ballina over 2,100 premises respectively can access SIRO’s network. This means 7,200 premises can already access SIRO’s network in Mayo.

Once Claremorris is complete , SIRO’s network will  be available to over 8,700 premises across the county, providing speeds of up to two gigabits for homes and up to ten gigabits for enterprise.

The roll-out of a full fibre broadband network in Claremorris is part of SIRO’s ongoing network expansion, targeting more than 700,000 premises in towns and cities across Ireland by 2026. To date, over 550,000 premises in 135 towns across the country can access the SIRO network. SIRO is investing more than €1 billion in delivering high speed, future proofed broadband across Ireland.

Mayo County Council Director of Services Joanne Grehan noted:

Fast and reliable connectivity is an essential service for homes and businesses. 100% fibre broadband is now accepted as the highest standard available to Irish consumers.

“It’s a good news story for Claremorris that SIRO is bringing its full fibre network to the town. It will unlock multiple benefits for the community. These include allowing more people to seamlessly work from home, undertake online education or stay connected to family and friends. For businesses, with reliable fibre broadband they can use technology in areas which really matter to their bottom line and for their long-term growth such as online sales, customer service, processing payments or facilitating video calls with colleagues and customers”, added Ms. Grehan.

SIRO CEO John Keaney said:

We’re delighted to reach Claremorris, marking another significant milestone in our Mayo rollout. SIRO is committed to bringing the transformative power of fibre broadband to regional Ireland, and Claremorris residents will now enjoy the same incredible speeds and reliability experienced by their neighbours in Westport, Ballina, and Castlebar. Full fibre connectivity is just the beginning for Claremorris, and we look forward to seeing how our network empowers businesses, homes, and individuals to thrive in the digital age.”
