An Irish-owned firm has just launched a new business-to-business fibre broadband service which it hopes will be able to compete with industry heavyweights.
Dublin-based Telcom has already been providing phone services to the corporate sector for several years with clients including Green Property and the Higher Education Authority.
The firm has now invested €1m into infrastructure upgrades to allow it to provide broadband services to businesses. The company's founder and managing director, Liam Tully, said the broadband offering is set to become a crucial part of the business as it looks to increase its sales from just above €3m to €10m over the next three years. "In the last month we would have signed up about 10-15 of our own clients, and we would want about 120 connections over the next year," he said.
"We would have competed with companies like Eircom and Vodafone from the start and while they are very good they can't offer the same level of personalised service."
