Satellite the most popular choice for 1st phase of Irish Community Broadband Scheme

The first phase of community broadband schemes that have been approved have been published to the Department of Communications, Marine and natural resources website
33 projects were approved and it is interesting to analyse the technologies employed.
Satellite – 15 communities – 43 %
Fixed Wireless Access – 11 communities – 33 %
ADSL – 7 communities – 24 %
The majority of satellite access was provided by Ildana Teoranta
2 of the schemes are being run by the community itself which is a big undertaking, it will be interesting to see how they get on, I wish them the best of luck. These two schemes opted for Fixed Wireless Access.
In most cases where ADSL was employed the provider was Eircom.
Digiweb and last mile wireless were the two main fixed wireless access providers.
We are currently in the process of applying for funding under phase 2 of this scheme. We hope to have selected our broadband provider by the end of this week.
