Ireland: Electricity Supply Board partners with government to link 26 cities with fiber

The Electricity Supply Board, Ireland's power utility, is teaming with the Irish government to link 40 Irish towns with its extensive fiber optic system:

"Speaking earlier today, the [Irish Communications Minister] said that under the new offerings, high-speed broadband packages will be available to towns on the ESB Telecom's fibre optic network. He said that 2.5Gbps wavelength products connecting Dublin to 26 regional towns will be made available on the Esat BT network. In total, over 40 towns will be involved. The minister also said that some of the pricing on offer will be "eight times lower" than that currently available on the market."
