Gorey takes a huge ‘byte’ out of wifi
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.
