UPC Upgrades its Basic Broadband to 120 Mbps

upc-logoWriting in this morning’s Irish Independent, Adrian Weckler reports that UPC are upgrading their basic broadband package from 50Mbps to 120Mbps, along with similar increases for other packages, in a move designed to put ‘clear blue water‘ between themselves and Eircom.

It’s good news for customers in areas that can receive the service, but as Adrian points out, it will further emphasise the divide between urban and rural areas for broadband speeds.

UPC reports that Irish internet traffic has grown 800% in the last 4 years and they are increasing their monthly data limits to allow for increased use of Netflix and similar services.
