Eircom goes mobile and check out Fennec and SkyFire

It's taken a very long time but it's a welcome entry by Eircom into the mobile internet world with it's new 3G broadband which is offering free access to the company’s 1,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the country.

It will be providing 7.2Mbps broadband over 3G to users living in Dublin, Cork city, Dundalk, Drogheda, Bray, Naas and Newbridge. The company said it will be extending the coverage range to well over half the population by the end of the year. Unfortunately, Waterford has been forgotten again in the first phase but hopefully there'll be coverage there soon. While 7.2 Mbps is welcome I still think we will need to get to 25Mbps + before click through speeds on your mobile provide enough of a seemless experience for recruiters to really start searching the likes of LinkedIn or there own SaaS mobile enabled ATS become a reality but with the alpha entry of Firefox's Fennec and the increasing development of SkyFire the world of true seemless mobile broadband is becoming much more credible.
