    • Researching Broadband Internet Services available to SMEs in Ireland 2011
      Ciara Bell N00072721
    • In this assignment I have researched and explored the different broadband options available to me, I have dealt with a number of interesting issues. I am going to put myself in the position of a sole trader in the Arts Management sector, operating as a business from a home office in my locality; Portmarnock, North Dublin, Fingal County Dublin.
      My Situation:
    • broadband refers to telecommunication in which a wide band of frequencies is available to transmit information. Because a wide band of frequencies is available, information can be multiplexed and sent on many different frequencies or channels within the band simultaneously, allowing more information to be transmitted in a given amount of time.
      What is Broadband?
    • 1. Cable TV
      2. Satellite
      3. 3G mobile
      4. DSL (over your phone line)
      5. Wireless
      Telephone line tested on bonkers.ie:
      it can support broadband at speeds of up to 5Mb/s and is enabled for Next Generation Broadband.
      5 ways to get Broadband in Portmarnock, County Dublin
    • O2
      Vodafone
      Perlico
      Magnet
      The 4 best broadband providers in my area:
      Digiweb
      Imagine
      UPC
      Eircom
      The following companies provide access to the internet in my area:
    • high-speed Internet access consisting of a high speed of data transmission
      Uploading
      Down loading speed
      Number of users at one time
      Skype phone calls overseas etc
      Unlimited downloading
      uninterrupted real time services
      fast downloading of websites
      instant messaging
      Contract of the service
      Security Features
      High quality customer support service
      From a Business Context
    • I am only going to look at wireless broadband as wired would not be suitable for a business situation as there would be more than one person on the internet at a time and it would not be fast enough.
      I currently have Vodafone broadband at home and it is very poor, I definitely wouldn’t recommend it.
      I would invest in high speed computers and laptops to be compatible with high speed broadband.
      When I was on the phone to the different customer services I was told that a residential broadband package would be a lot cheaper than the business one.
