Derry broadband provider Beacon creates 12 jobs as it looks to grow exports
A NEW wireless broadband provider is creating 12 jobs in Derry as it looks to increase export sales and grow its presence in the Republic of Ireland market.
Beacon Broadband, based in Derry, was established in 2016 and is now looking to position itself for further growth through the major investment.
Invest Northern Ireland has offered the company £48,000 towards the creation of the new jobs and the roles include installers, sales support staff, an office manager and a technical engineer.
Invest NI north west regional manager, Des Gartland welcomed the expansion at the Derry firm, which delivers high speed wireless broadband to homes and businesses
“Beacon Broadband was established in 2016 to exploit a gap in the wireless broadband market created as a result of the increased popularity in media streaming. These new jobs are great news for the local area and our support is ensuring the company has the resources in place to win new business in its target markets."
"We are confident that this is only the beginning for Beacon Broadband and we look forward to building on our relationship with the company in the coming years," he added.
Managing director of Beacon Broadband, Brian McCourt said he hopes the expansion will help secure new sales, especially in the Republic of Ireland market.
“Our company ethos is built on providing strong customer service backed by the provision of guaranteed service speeds and uptime. Using the latest technology, we offer speeds that rival fibre broadband in areas that have little or no broadband access. This is making us a very attractive proposition to many consumers across both Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.
