AirSpeed Telecom, a leading provider of high-performance telecommunications products and services to enterprise, public sector and small to medium sized businesses, is now delivering speeds of up to 500Mb to the Kells Tech Hub in Co. Meath. The always-on high-speed broadband will be delivered to the facility which boasts 68 co-working spaces, a 120-seater auditorium and 2,000 square foot dedicated innovation zone.
The Kells Tech Hub is a world class enterprise development, training and co-working facility that seeks to support start-ups and SME’s to scale and go global, while also supporting regional development by acting as a strategic landing hub for FDI and a viable outreach hub for large city-based employers and remote workers who simply want to avoid the long commutes.
The Kells Tech Hub is home to a number of start-up businesses and remote workers including 5D Design, which utilises Computer Aided Design to build 3D prototype solutions for the mechanical and plastic parts industries, creating efficiencies on production lines. Unicorn Magic, who use AI to create apps for Google, and Des Fitzgerald, a product designer with Dublin based firm Twisted Image. These businesses require guaranteed high-speed connectivity at all times, which has been made possible by the service provided by AirSpeed Telecom. In addition, the bandwidth is scalable and will allow Kells Tech Hub to expand, depending on future needs.
Gary O’Meara, CEO of Meath Enterprise which operates the Kells Tech Hub, says:
“Meath Enterprise has formed a close partnership with AirSpeed Telecom, which has been critical to delivering high-speed broadband to the area.
