  • 1. Researching Broadband Internet Services available to SMEs in Ireland 2011
    Ciara Bell N00072721
  • 2. 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:
  • 3. 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?
  • 4. 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
  • 5. 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:
  • 6. 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
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. Leading independent telecommunications company
    Provides: nationwide broadband, enterprise data networks, data centre and web hosting services, managed services and telephony to residential, business and public sector customers
    Total subscriber base of 46,500 business, residential, corporate and government customers for broadband, data and telephony, along with over 48,000 web hosting, domain and data centre clients.
