DONEGAL EIRCOM EXCHANGES GET NEXT GENERATION BROADBAND UPGRADE

first_imgDonegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has received confirmation from the Head of Communications at Eircom that a number of Broadband exchanges across Donegal have been upgraded to the Next Generation Broadband Core Network.Senator Ó Domhnaill said: “The upgrade works aim to build on top of the National Fibre Network, acting as a highly effective distribution infrastructure which delivers multi-gigabit speeds into local exchanges all over the County.”“The rollout involves the upgrading of the transmission equipment to DWDM. This then allows the National Fibre Network to deliver an ultra-high-capacity NGN Core Network that’s capable of delivering dedicated gigabit speeds to end-users.” The Ballyshannon exchange was upgraded in January, with the Creeslough exchange upgraded in February.A number of exchanges, including Bunbeg, Glenties and Killygordon were upgraded during the month of March and the Castelfin exchange was upgraded last weekend.“I have now received confirmation that the Dungloe exchange is now on the provisional list to be completed in 2012.”“These developments make welcome news, however I have raised concerns with Eircom, other providers and the Department of Communications around the optimum roll out of an adequate speed Broadband Service to more Rural Areas of the County. “While the National Broadband Scheme provided progress in terms of services roll-out the actual service being provided through the NBS Wireless Services can leave a lot to be desired in many areas.” DONEGAL EIRCOM EXCHANGES GET NEXT GENERATION BROADBAND UPGRADE was last modified: April 5th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:FR BRIAN O’DOMHNAILLNEXT BROADBAND GENERATIONlast_img read more

Bucs get 49ers’ Rattay to address QB depth problem

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Rattay, a seventh-round pick in 2000, started nine games last season and beat out Smith in training camp this season. But he performed poorly after an opening victory over St. Louis and was benched by coach Mike Nolan. Rattay has played in 32 games with 16 starts. He has completed 356 of 586 passes (60.8 percent) for 3,941 yards, 24 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. He has a career passer rating of 81.6. At Louisiana Tech, Rattay started 33 games, finishing second in NCAA history with 12,746 yards passing. He was the third player in NCAA history with more than 100 career touchdown passes. Tampa Bay’s other quarterback, Luke McCown, was also a standout at Louisiana Tech. — Associated Press TAMPA, Fla. — Tim Rattay was acquired Tuesday by Tampa Bay as the Buccaneers addressed their shortage at quarterback after Brian Griese injured his knee. The Bucs sent an undisclosed draft choice to the San Francisco 49ers for the six-year veteran, who lost his job in San Francisco after four weeks to top overall draft pick Alex Smith. The transaction beat the NFL trading deadline of 4 p.m. EDT Tuesday. To make room for Rattay on the active roster, the Bucs released rookie fullback Rick Razzano. Griese tore knee ligaments in Sunday’s victory over Miami and will be out for a lengthy time. Chris Simms took over for Griese as the Buccaneers beat the Dolphins, 27-13. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
