DUBLIN -- Irish Broadband, Ireland’s only alternative broadband network provider, today (4th of August 2005) announced that it has placed follow-on orders valued at more than $1.3 million with Navini Networks, one of the world’s leading providers of wireless data and telecoms solutions.

The orders, which were mainly for Navini’s Ripwave Base Station (BTS) and Ripwave modem products, will enable Irish Broadband to significantly improve coverage and density of its Ripwave network over the next 6 months to meet strong consumer demand for Irish Broadband’s Ripwave portable broadband Internet service.

Paul Doody, Managing Director of Irish Broadband, commented, “Irish Broadband’s network rollout programme is proceeding well. We are signing up over 400 customers every week and expect that number to significantly increase in the second half of 2005, given the strong surge in demand for broadband we experienced in the 2nd quarter of this year.”

Since 2002, Irish Broadband has been expanding its wireless broadband network using various Navini products in both the licensed and license-exempt spectrums. Doody continued, “Navini equipment has enabled us to add more customers at higher speeds and more quickly, an advantage that has undoubtedly contributed to our fast growth. Our network is complete in all our major cities and towns and we are now building on this to provide near nationwide coverage by the end of 2005.”
