Broadband provider UPC has announced plans to invest €15 million (£12.7 million) in broadband, digital TV and home phone services, which will be rolled out to thousands of homes in areas including Sligo and Athlone.

According to, the company hopes to offer the public all three services in an affordable package.

Mark Coan, Sales and Marketing Director at UPC, told the website that access to such services is critical for many communities.

He added: "This is the completion of a three-year investment programme in these six towns, which has seen us completely overhaul and rebuild the cable networks, investing well over €15 million in total."
