Rural WiFi is proud to announce that we have been awarded ‘Best Emerging Telecoms Company 2021’ for EU Business News’s Irish Enterprise Awards. It is a huge surprise and honour to win such a prestigious award within a very competitive category.

Please see the press release below for more details.

Best Emerging Telecoms Company’ – Irish Enterprise Awards 2021

Almost everybody in the world is now reliant on a stable Internet connection in some way, shape, or form. That remains true for both inner city innovators and people who choose to live in more rural areas. Established in 2014, Rural Wi-Fi is a broadband provider offering all
types of solutions in the telecommunications marketplace. Following its well-deserved success in the Irish Enterprise Awards 2021, we got in touch with CEO Patrick Cotter to find out more.

Who is Rural WiFi

Based in Dublin, Rural Wi-Fi is committed to guaranteeing broadband connectivity for its
clients regardless of their location. There is a great need for people to have access to a
broadband connection that is both stable and secure. For instance, what happens when an
accident occurs in rural areas? Many forms of communication now rely on Internet
connection, and Rural Wi-Fi is a firm that is committed to ensuring everybody has a
connection they can rely on. To begin, Patrick gives us a brief overview of the firm and offers
more insight into its clientele. “As a broadband provider, we aim to get our clients connected
with the best available solution. With four options to choose from including rural fibre,
high-speed, mobile and satellite, we are confident there is a solution for everyone.”

Across Ireland, the firm is in direct competition with several other broadband providers,
including some of the biggest brands and players in the entire industry. However, as Patrick
elaborates further, it is Rural Wi-Fi’s offering of satellite broadband, in particular, that has
enabled the firm to stand out from the crowd of others. “Konnect is a brand-new satellite,
launched at the start of 2020 by Eutelsat, one of the largest satellite companies in the world.
Sitting in a geo-stationery orbit of 35,000km above the earth’s surface, using state-of-the-art
the technology delivers speeds of up to 100 Mbps without the need to dig up roads and lay
cables. Following a one-off activation fee of €49, we can provide free professional
installations for all our clients.”

Covid Impact

Despite the outbreak of COVID-19, the firm has continued to thrive during the pandemic.
With more people staying at home than ever before, reliance on a solid and stable Internet
connection is imperative. Even those working from home need an Internet connection,
especially those in a rural environment. This success has been crucial for Rural Wi-Fi, as
Patrick points out. “With people working from home our business has increased dramatically.
In addition, new partnerships have created even more services which have also led to us hiring
more staff to deal with the queries.”

Finally, Patrick comments on the future prospects of Rural Wi-Fi as we look ahead to 2021
and beyond. “Moving forward, having satisfied the demands of many clients to date, we will
be working hard to maintain the reputation we have managed to establish here in Ireland.
Moreover, as pricing can heavily influence a customer’s decision, we will have to keep an eye on the market to ensure we are offering our customers value.”

Very happy and highly recommend. Last month we were looking for a new internet provider and spent some time reading reviews of the providers in our area. After readig them and talking about our choices, my wife and I liked the reviews of Rural Wifi, they had lots of them and the comments were very positive. So after all our research, we made our decision and are very happy with it. They offer great service which is hard to find these days and they also have a wonderful and friendly customer service team when you need them

Amazing service! I’ve had Rural WiFi for the past 2 years and I would have been lost without it. Such a great service and amazing customer service too. Never had a days trouble with it at all.

Excellent, reliable company I have been with Rural WiFi for a number of years now. I have found them to be extremely reliable and reasonably priced. I live in the countryside and have forestry around my house. I tried a few companies before I found Rural WiFi, they are the only company that got us connected at a decent speed, even the landline speed was extremely slow (not fiberoptic) through eircom. Rural WiFi customer service is one of the best I've ever dealt with. They return a call or email when they say they will, they deal with the issue promptly and professionally. I recommend Rural WiFi 100%
