Great news for the Rhode area as we are about to experience phenomenal broadband speeds from February 2017.
At the moment the average speed around the Rhode area is around 6mb, some people have around 2mb and some lucky people closer to the exchange in the village who have opted for efibre have around 50mb. This is all about to change as anyone within the Rhode area will soon be able to avail of download & upload speeds of up to 1,000Mb a second.
This is possible with the new eir Fibre Extreme broadband.
Extreme fibre broadband delivers speeds up to 1,000Mb, that’s almost 10 times faster than our fibre broadband, and over 40 times faster than standard broadband with absolutely no usage limits. To put things into perspective a full HD movie can be downloaded in approx 7 seconds.
Is 1000MB too fast? It probably is for low internet users, There are different packages available.
