In 1997 Ennis, Co. Clare was hailed as being the forerunner of Ireland’s technological development. Computers were circulated to the locals through the Information Age Town Programme and a fibre optic loop was to surround the town, providing high speed internet to businesses and citizens. This project was never fulfilled and the town never saw the dizzying internet heights envisioned.
NOW, Next Generation Access (NGA) means that by the end of 2014 over 1.2m homes in Ireland can experience up to 70Mb. This will enable Ennis town to experience greater speeds and a higher quality of broadband through their internet service provider.
Both residents and businesses can benefit from these faster broadband speeds and opportunities will arise for enterprise and employment. The potential for change in the local environment is huge and already future-oriented organisations are taking advantage of the mobile aspect.
One such venture, Ennisapp.ie, has recently been launched to promote the activities and organisations of the town. Under the headings of Food & Drink, What’s on, Things to do, Shopping, Where to stay and Emergency & Local services, anyone can find out about what’s happening in the town. Created in conjunction with Ennis Chamber of Commerce, Visitennis.com, Shannon Development and Ennis Town council the app hopes to make use of the faster internet speeds. With the use of Magnet’s broadband service Ennisapp.ie will facilitate instantaneous information on your Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop or PC.
