Virgin Media will be in Gorey on Thursday 25th October to celebrate Ireland’s Internet Day and the designation of Gorey as the 2018 Digital Town by the Irish Domain Name Registry (IEDR).

The ‘Digital Town’ initiative highlights the benefits and possibilities of the internet and celebrates the digital achievements of a local town. Gorey was chosen for cultivating a truly digital environment in the town, and for its ongoing successes in fully embracing digital for its residents and for local businesses.

During the day, there will be discussions and presentations on the benefits of high speed broadband and digitisation – in the Digital Dome being established in the town centre by IEDR and Gorey Chamber to mark Gorey’s success. Business guru and broadcaster Bobby Kerr will MC the proceedings which will also include many local business success stories.

Through our national Project Lightning network investment programme, Virgin Media has extended its ultrafast network to circa 20,000 premises in Gorey, Enniscorthy, New Ross and Wexford in the past year, bringing Ireland’s fastest broadband and the best connected entertainment to Gorey.  Virgin Media also introduced Free Public Wi-Fi for citizens in the town, contributing strongly to Gorey’s capability and success as Ireland’s 2018 Digital Town.

Towns across Ireland including Gorey are currently benefiting from our ongoing network expansion programme which involves connecting local communities to Ireland’s fastest broadband provider. Over the past two years, Virgin Media has added 100,000 new homes and businesses to its network map in Ireland, and is on target to reach the 1 million milestone over the next 2 years.
