UPC Raises Entry Level Broadband Speed to 120MB

UPC today announced a new Horizon 120Mb Broadband speed for home broadband customers, more than double its current entry-level speed of 50Mb. This move is setting a new minimum acceptable standard of 120Mb for fibre powered broadband in Ireland.

Mark Coan, Vice President Sales & Marketing of UPC Ireland said:

“We’ve always been the speed leader and have increased speeds for our customers every year since we launched back in 2008 with just 3Mb of speed.  As consumers get more bandwidth hungry, our fibre powered network has the flexibility and scalability to meet all their future needs.  In a nutshell, the faster your broadband speed, the more you’ll be able to do online. So if there are a few of you at home gaming, downloading, streaming movies and shopping, then mega speeds of up to 200Mb will let you all do your thing at the same time”

Fastest home broadband provider in Ireland launches Horizon 120Mb service as new entry level

Monday, 14th October 2013 – Ireland’s leading TV, broadband and communications innovator UPC today announced a spectacular new Horizon 120Mb Broadband speed for home broadband customers, more than double its current entry-level speed of 50Mb.

 

This move is setting a new minimum acceptable standard of 120Mb for true fibre powered broadband in Ireland. UPC has yet again raised the market standard ahead of any other service provider, by making their entry speed faster than the fastest speed that is offered by other players. Furthermore, UPC’s higher speed 150Mb service is also being raised to 200Mb.

 

UPC today also boosted its offer for lighter internet users, again beating anything the competition is able to offer, ramping up speeds to 120Mb and increasing the current 10GB usage allowance to a new standard of 30GB. Making thelightning fast home broadband speeds enabled by UPC’s fibre power network available to both light and heavy users.

 

This speed increase takes UPC’s Fibrepower entry speed beyond other players fastest possible speeds for the foreseeable future.  UPC’s Fibrepower network now reaches almost a half of the population (46%), following UPC’s network investments of over half a billion euro.

 

The new speeds are provided automatically as part of UPC’s Horizon bundles and are also available as part of Broadband & Phone bundles from today. Existing customers can move to these new packages when they opt to renew their UPC services.

 

Mark Coan, Vice President Sales & Marketing of UPC Ireland said:

“We strive to make our services not just a little bit better than what others provide, but to make them truly extraordinary. By moving our entry speed to 120Mb we are delivering on this promise, with entry speeds faster than others’ fastest speeds. Coming on the back of the recent success of our Horizon TV launch,  this move further positions UPC as the only player to provide extraordinary services across its entire product range and redefines the minimum acceptable broadband speed in the Irish market.”

 

“We’ve always been the speed leader and have increased speeds for our customers every year since we launched back in 2008 with just 3Mb of speed.  As consumers get more bandwidth hungry, our fibre powered network has the flexibility and scalability to meet all their future needs.  In a nutshell, the faster your broadband speed, the more you’ll be able to do online. So if there are a few of you at home gaming, downloading, streaming movies and shopping, then mega speeds of up to 200Mb will let you all do your thing at the same time”, said Mark Coan.
