3, Ireland’s largest high speed network, officially opened a new Business Customer Care Centre in Waterford today. Customer Relations Director, Lanna O’Reilly, was joined by local GAA players Shane O’Sullivan and Noel Connors to celebrate the opening.


The new care centre caters for 3’s fast-growing business customer base, providing assistance for customer enquiries and technical support. Since 3 entered the SME business market in 2008, thousands of business customers have availed of the company’s value-for-money price plans and innovative services.  Today’s announcement underlines 3’s position as Ireland’s fastest growing mobile operator, market leader in mobile broadband and Ireland’s largest high speed network.


Speaking at the launch, Lanna O’Reilly, Customer Relations Director, 3 said: “We are delighted to be making this announcement today. 3 is the fastest growing operator in the Irish market and having a first-class Irish operation servicing our Business customers is an important part of our market-leading offering. We continue to grow our overall customer base and hundreds of Irish businesses have already made the switch to 3 and are enjoying around 30% savings on their bills compared to the old networks. This announcement reflects our ambition to become the network of choice for all businesses in Ireland looking for great value, a silver platter service and the most flexible price plans available.”


3 has invested over €600 million in rolling out its high speed and high capacity network in Ireland to date, with ongoing investment as part of the National Broadband Scheme which 3 was awarded in December 2008. In a world first, 3 recently announced that it had upgraded its network using Nokia Siemens Networks I-HSPA technology which delivers an enhanced customer experience for both voice and data customers nationwide. 3 also announced it plans to trial speeds of up 42 Mbps later this year.


3 offers market-leading Business Sharer price plans offering savings of up to 30% compared to the old networks with businesses saving on average 4000 euros per year. 3’s business price plans are unique and allow customers to share their data, voice and text allowances across users to suit their needs.
