Gorey Guardian - - NEWS - By SARA GA­HAN

The peo­ple of Gorey have con­sumed more than 400,000Mb since Vir­gin Me­dia turned on their free public WiFi on the Main Street.

The large amount is equiv­a­lent to send­ing over 140,000 emails, view­ing 1 mil­lion web­pages, stream­ing 70,000 min­utes of mu­sic and watch­ing over 6,000 min­utes of HD qual­ity videos.

The public WiFi was launched on De­cem­ber 15 and is avail­able at Mar­ket House, Gorey on the Main Street be­tween North Pa­rade and John Street.

CEO of Gorey Cham­ber Diar­muid Dev­ereux said ‘this has been a huge boost for con­sumers and busi­nesses on the Main Street in Gorey and has shown the ap­petite for free Public Wifi in Gorey is huge’.

‘We are also de­lighted to have Vir­gin Me­dia ex­pand its ser­vices into Gorey,’ added Mr Dev­ereux. ‘It means res­i­dents will have more com­pe­ti­tion and ac­cess to Ire­land’s fastest broad­band provider.’

Vice Pres­i­dent of Com­mer­cial at Vir­gin Me­dia Paul Far­rell said ‘towns across Ire­land in­clud­ing Gorey are cur­rently ben­e­fit­ing from our on­go­ing net­work ex­pan­sion pro­gramme which in­volves con­nect­ing lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to Ire­land’s fastest broad­band provider’.

‘As part of this con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion of our net­work, we are de­liv­er­ing free Public WiFi to many towns across the coun­try,’ said Mr Far­rell.
