Ericsson and Three launch largest 5G network in Ireland

28/09/2020

The close working relationship between the two companies began last year with the aim of achieving rapid 5G deployment and best-in-class network performance. Through this successful partnership, 5G has been rolled out on 315 sites across Ireland, offering 35 percent population coverage with a further 500 sites set to be deployed in 2021.

Powered by Ericsson's fully virtualized 5G Core and the latest products and solutions from the Ericsson Radio System portfolio, Three Ireland's new 5G network brings enhanced network coverage and capacity to customers across Ireland and supports Three's ongoing commitment to increase nationwide connectivity. It also provides a platform for innovation, with the flexibility needed to empower new services across the country and build new use cases for people, businesses, and society at large.

Robert Finnegan, CEO of Three Ireland and Three UK said: As Ireland's largest mobile data network, carrying 68% of all mobile data, I am delighted that Three is now launching Ireland's largest 5G network, which will be available to Three customers in every county from today. We started our 5G rollout with Ericsson last year, building our network to bring customers in both rural and urban areas the best possible experience of 5G from the very beginning, which includes providing superfast broadband to remote areas in Ireland. With our nationwide 5G footprint now in place and a variety of 5G enabled devices on the market, we believe now is the right time to launch. Connectivity is vital to our everyday lives, so we wanted to be the first in the country to offer Prepay customers as well as Bill pay customers a 5G experience. 5G is transforming how we connect, work, are entertained and how we live our lives. Having seen what 5G can do and the latency it provides, I am excited to see the economic developments and opportunities this brings to Ireland as we strive to compete in a global environment where connectivity is crucial.

Arun Bansal, President of Europe and Latin America, Ericsson says: With this extensive 5G roll-out, our partners at Three are showcasing their leadership as 5G innovators. Three has made significant developments since we became the technology partner for 4G and 5G last year. With us, they now have a best-in-class 4G network and will be ahead in 5G too, thanks to Ericsson's leading 5G RAN and state-of-the-art virtualized Core Network. As our partnership strengthens, expansive 5G across Ireland will boost economic development and mean many fantastic new opportunities.
