High speed broadband access is an issue for many communities, however this issue is being addresses in County Leitrim with the provision of open access to high speed 100mbps uncontended fibre broadband in Carrick on Shannon and Manorhamilton.

Shared office space at ManorHub, Manorhamilton
ManorHub opened in Manorhamilton in 2015 in response to the need for high speed enterprise level broadband and to provide small offices and access to high level services not available to the many people working from home or running a small business. With high speed reliable broadband and private office accommodation that makes them more effective while they are working, they have more time to spend away from their desk. Managing director and entrepreneur Ronan Haslette remarked ‘We know that there are opportunities for large companies to retain valuable talent by allowing them to reduce the number of days they spend in their employer’s office and use our facility and services and for employees to benefit from a rural work life balance while still connecting with their office.’

Shared offices are also very popular with many people who find it difficult or don’t have space to work from a home office, or find it challenging to focus on their new business or idea. Hundreds of Leitrim people commute long distances out of the county every morning, but many may have the option to avoid a long commute by working from home. ‘Many users have said using a shared space helps them to focus on the task or project at hand instead of getting distracted’ said Bernie Dolan who is the administrator at the new Manor Hub facility.
