Daily Wireless: "Wireless Broadband in Ireland"

Daily Wireless has an interesting note with lots of links on the Irish government's efforts to expand broadband access throughout the Republic of Ireland. The note, posted by Sam Churchill, also has information on efforts in Northern Ireland, as well. Part of the Irish Minister for Communications' initiative includes funding wireless network pilots in Dublin, Cork, Mayo, Sligo, Galway, Limerick and Louth.

Other Irish initiatives include fibre backbones and power line broadband
The Minister, Dermot Ahern, is pursuing other broadband access options as well. The Irish wireless broadband trials coincide with the development of municipal fibre optic backbones in some of these cities, such as Sligo, Dublin, Mayo and Galway. As noted previously in this blog, Ireland's Electricity Supply Board (ESB) is opening up its' extensive national fiber network to various carriers. Also, the Irish government announced last year that it was interested in broadband over power line (BPL) technology as well; at least one trial is underway using Cybercom equipment.
