BELFAST, U.K., OXFORD, U.K., and DUBLIN -- Personal Broadband announced today its success in winning identical spectrum licenses in both Northern Ireland (UK) and in the Republic of Ireland.

This spectrum will be used for an innovative all-Ireland mobile broadband Internet service. Personal Broadband's advanced world-class technology has been trialed for 3 years in Belfast.

In a statement today, Jim Cooney, CEO and founder of Personal Broadband praised the vision of the UK and Irish spectrum regulators (Ofcom and ComReg) for enabling the coordinated spectrum awards.

"In securing the 1785-1805 MHz band in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, Personal Broadband will be the first to deliver a unified mobile network for businesses across the whole island of Ireland. It has been an exciting step in Ireland's history and we are grateful to the regulators for their foresight and cooperative approach. Mobile Broadband is the most exciting development in communications since the invention of the cellular phone in 1973, and we will be using the world's most effective platform for mobile data."
