What is SIRO?

100% fibre optic connection straight into your home via the existing electricity network

100% fibre optic connection straight into your home via the existing electricity network

SIRO is rolling out the fastest broadband network in Ireland. As we all move towards more and more broadband-reliant devices, we can all benefit from 100% fibre-optic speeds of up to 1GB.

We deliver this broadband straight to your home using the ESB network and you simply avail by connecting with one of retail partners.

Just connect your devices and away you go. SIRO cuts out buffering and sharing and you don’t pay line rental fees. Look forward to super-fast, super-reliable fibre broadband that just works as it’s meant to – all of the time

How does it work?

How does it work?

Unlike other broadband infrastructure, SIRO has a 100% fibre-optic internet connection all the way to the building.

Currently the most used technology in Ireland, Fibre-to-the-Cabinet generally delivers speeds of up to 100Mb/s. The downside is the last few feet between the telephone exchange cabinet on the street and the router in your house. All that fibre-optic, light-speed goodness is lost on the last stretch of copper wire used to connect your house to the exchange. Copper is good for old school landline calls, not so good for superfast broadband signals. It, literally, slows the signal right down.

SIRO is a Fibre-to-the-Home connection. This means you never lose the speed of fibre-optics – delivering you speeds up to 1000Mbps. The fibre-optic cables run directly to your router inside your house with no loss of signal.

The result? Broadband that is 26 times faster than the average broadband speed in Ireland.

Mutiple Devices

Copper has low ‘bandwidth’ but fibre gives up to a massive 10 Gbps and beyond so you can connect as many devices to your broadband as you like and not slow down your connection.

Ultrafast

Fibre is 1,000 times better than copper and the signal can travel much further along it. The longer the copper cable used, the more bandwidth you lose. With fibre-optics, there’s no discernable loss over the distance from cabinet to router in your home. SIRO lets you download a HD movie in 30 seconds, so you’ll have instance access to watch what you want, when you want.

Buffer Free/Reliability

Buffer Free/Reliability

Fibre-optic cable isn’t affected by environmental factors than can  weaken signals over copper cables. For example, the signal on a copper wire drops massively over just two kilometres, whereas fibre-optic cable over the same distance is extremely reliable. And, unlike copper, things like temperature and weather don’t affect fibre.

Be Ready for the Future

Be Ready for the Future

Fibre-optic cables don’t carry electricity, so they don’t radiate signals that can be tapped. Copper uses electricity and so is open to be tapped, which can cause the entire system to fail. A broken or damaged fibre-optic cable can be identified very quickly. Copper cable can short completely or even go on fire if it’s damaged, old or worn.

Over time, fibre-optics will completely replace copper cables in both long and short-haul networking – and copper will become a thing of the past. Why not search your address to see if your home is connectable to SIRO powered broadband.
