Digiweb buys Internet Ireland

Irish ISP Digiweb has acquired rival Internet Ireland from Independent News and Media or an undisclosed sum. 
 
Digiweb said it would incorporate Internet Ireland's services – including fiber and wireless broadband, leased lines, high speed DSL, telephony and VOIP, and private networks – into its own portfolio.  
 
Internet Ireland, which has been operating for over 15 years, also offers web hosting, data centre allocation and managed email solutions. 
 
“We are looking forward to welcoming Internet Ireland’s customers and staff to Digiweb and integrating these long-established Irish telecom businesses,” Digiweb executive Dan King said. 
 
The acquisition in Digiweb's second in a month – the company in December acquired Smart Telecom, which had entered a period of examinership in August.  
Smart - which has around 46,500 subscribers, and 48,000 web hosting and data centre clients - has been made a subsidiary of Digiweb, keeping its brand. 
 
Digiweb already offers home and business broadband and webhosting services, as well as wireless broadband.
