TELCOMMUNICATIONS company eir has announced the further expansion of its 5G network in Limerick to areas including Abbeyfeale, Caherconlish, Ballyneety, Caherdavin and Raheen.

Users of 5G are able to download their favourite shows instantly, stream high-definition content without buffering and enjoy lag-free low-latency gaming. 5G technology also substantially enhances business connectivity, allowing customers greater
reliability, speed and connection.
