Surfers in West Ireland

Shine Brighter

SIRO exists to let you do more, faster and enable Ireland to work smarter, play harder and shine brighter. That’s why we’re named after Sirius, the brightest star in the sky.

High speed, fibre optic broadband everywhere on the island is a crucial element for Ireland’s future competitiveness. Our plan to roll out high-speed fibre-to-the-building broadband to an initial 50 towns is the brightest development to arrive in regional Ireland since rural electrification.

This ground-breaking venture will help to propel Ireland into the ranks of the world’s fastest broadband countries and open up a new world of possibilities for Irish consumers, businesses and the agricultural community.

Looking to rural Ireland

As part of our plan, we chose the small community of Ratheniska to trial SIRO’s fibre-to-the-building technology. Ratheniska encapsulates both the challenges and the opportunities for rural Ireland when it comes to connectivity. With its midland location, strongly knit community, GAA club, primary school and a mix of homes, farms and local businesses, this was just the sort of place that would benefit from SIRO’s unique offering.

Designed to Connect and Create

As the owner of a small business that has to keep up with the latest trends in design and media, Gillian Reidy is perfectly poised to judge the effects of SIRO’s connectivity to SMEs around Ireland.

Creative Director Gillian married a local farmer and moved her design business from bustling Dublin 4 to the picturesque setting of Ratheniska. As she acknowledges:

“In the design industry, technology is always advancing, so it’s really important for us that, just because of our countryside location, we’re not left behind. SIRO is going to improve our responsiveness to clients on a daily basis.”

With SIRO, we are levelling the playing field all over Ireland, giving households and businesses the ability to enjoy the same levels of connectivity as the main urban centres.

As we roll out across Ireland, more homes and SMEs, like Gillian’s can enjoy what city dwellers have taken for granted for years.
