The connectivity that DeCare has achieved through the Claremorris MAN will have a significant effect on the competitiveness of our business, as the speed and efficiency of our operations is a vital component in our success. We currently employ over 90 people in our customer service and claims operation centre in Claremorris and this initiative will enable us to broaden the scope of our services even further and increase our staff by up to 10%.

CBE are delighted with the activation of the Metropolitan Area Network. It’s essential for our business. We built our new head office and R&D centre in Claremorris in the knowledge that we would have MAN access. Furthermore, it’s absolutely crucial for our export business.

We’re a web dependent company and needed to get onto the Cork City MAN in order to avail of the bandwidth needed to improve our client services.

Andrew O'Shaughnessy, Poppulo

Piggybacking on the MAN infrastructure helps us to offer high speed broadband services to homes in parts of the country which were black spots before the arrival of WiMax.

Brian O'Donohoe, Imagine

Our customer’s traffic runs over the MAN’s. I don’t think we would be able to compete with the big DSL carriers like Eircom or BT if the MANs hadn’t been built.
