Social Media day

Through multiple social platforms, we’re able to connect with friends, make new friends, facilitate business, and grow our networks on a global scale. When you think about it, social media is incredible. So it does deserve its own day!

Social media has revolutionized how we talk to each other around the world. That seems deserving of a day of recognition, doesn’t it?

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

Good customer support. Easy to get a response by telephone. Prompt assistance and installation. Good broadband coverage, despite residing in a 'black spot'.

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%
