Broadband in Beara
Broadband in Beara Over the last three years broadband has been turned on in Castletownbere, Bere Island and Eyeries, Adrigole , Allihies and Glengarriff . There is over thousand households and businesses with broadband on the peninsula. Some businesses have up to 7 Mbits with a choice of five difference service providers . These exchanges in Castletownbere and Bere Island were enabled by Eircom with a contribution by Beara Tourism in conjunction with Bere Island project. Beara Tourism in partnership with Allihies Coop is part funding the roll out of broadband in Allihies and Adrigole. These exchanges were turn on in the spring of 2010. The last areas on the Cork side of the peninsula is Ardgroom and Garnish. Beara Tourism and the Caha Centre has requested Eircom to cost them. This is very good news for the Beara region as many parts of Co Cork and Kerry are still waiting for broadband , it is great to see the all these community groups working together in the area for the greater good.
