A few months ago, Ivertec started offering broadband without phone lines from their transmitter on the top of Clara, offering speed of up to 100Mbps, with the ability to serve areas that can’t get broadband through their phone line, and maybe even faster than the service in town . We’re wondering if some of the people that signed up for their service can let us know how the Ivertec service is , and what sort of speeds they are getting.
To test the speed, just go to broadbandspeedtest.ie and press the GO button, and please send us the results please, either in a comment below, to <email@example.com>, or to our Facebook

Sincere thanks to Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this week’s programme on Sunday 16th June 2019. (S.R.)
Costing thirteen million euro and an expensive golf iron, the recent visit of American President Donald Trump was not controversy free.
Fifty six years and ten American Presidents earlier, John F. Kennedy was the first head of his country to drop by and say hello. Unlike ‘The Donald’, Kennedy’s visit was a morale booster for a nation in the midst of a depression.
Unlike Kennedy, it would be difficult to imagine a photograph of Trump keeping the Pope company on Irish kitchen walls.
However, on this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene discovers that the Kennedy’s had their own little skeletons in the cupboard as well. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 at 7pm This Sunday”
