Broadband and wireless company Enet says it is moving into a new Limerick headquarters and investing €1m at the site.

The wholesale network provider says it plans to occupy a 14,000 sq ft (1,300 sq m) office roughly twice the size of its existing HQ in early 2020. Both are located at the National Technological Park in Limerick.

The planned move follows recent hiring of new staff in engineering, operations, sales and customer services roles, that took Enet's staff total above 120 nationwide, including 75 in Limerick.

Enet - founded in Limerick in 2004 to roll out State-funded internet to the regions - said the new HQ will feature a network operations centre staffed round the clock, seven days a week.

"We are incredibly excited about expanding our footprint in Limerick with this new state-of-the-art facility," said Enet CEO Peter McCarthy, who called it "the most significant investment the company has made in terms of a building redevelopment".

Enet operates a 5,400km fibre network used by more than 80 retail service providers that, in turn, connect around one million users nationwide.

As part of this, Enet manages 88 State-owned metropolitan area networks, covering 94 regional towns and cities.

Mr McCarthy said Enet networks "play a pivotal role in removing any telecoms or bandwidth barriers" in regions where Irish small and medium-sized firms and multinationals need reliable access to high-speed internet.
