Consumers and businesses in Ireland should be able to access super-fast broadband services by the summer, it has been announced.

Broadband provider UPC says it should be providing 100Mb broadband to around one million homes by later this year.

The firm says the plan will allow advanced web services to be delivered to internet users, vastly increasing their online capabilities.

UPC Ireland Chief Executive Officer Robert Dunn commented: "We're changing the parameters for consumers who want to experience ultra-fast broadband - speeds familiar to many of our European counterparts.

"These types of products are central to a digital economy and are 'must have' items for foreign investors looking to enter the Irish economy."

UPC is currently investing €300 million (£256 million) upgrading broadband infrastructure in Ireland to support faster download and upload speeds.
