About Aurora Telecom

What we do

"Provision of bespoke fibre and bandwidth solutions, enabling customers' next generation communications needs".

Aurora Telecom is Ireland's leading backhaul dark fibre service provider.  We own and operate a carrier neutral, open access dark fibre network with an ultra-high fibre count. Our network is the most modern, carrier grade, backhaul dark fibre network in Ireland.  It has been constructed using the latest fibre optic technology.

Aurora Telecom is a carrier and enterprise service provider. We supply to carriers and telecom operators (fixed / wireless / mobile), wholesale providers, corporate and public sector customers.  Our customers receive bespoke, dedicated, un-metered and completely secure, high-speed fibre connectivity.  Our network delivers superior performance and provides a reliable and secure base layer for carriers and enterprise to deliver their connectivity solutions.


Aurora Telecom owns and operates an extensive national backhaul fibre network.  The network links Dublin to Galway via Athlone and Mullingar and to Cork City via Ennis, Shannon and Limerick.  The national network also extends into Co. Mayo. We are continuing to invest in our state-of-the-art national fibre network.  We are extending it from Cork to Dublin via Waterford and Carlow.

Aurora's Dublin Metropolitan Area Network has one of the most extensive dark fibre network footprints in Dublin. Through significant investment, we own and operate our own cable and fibre infrastructure.  This has enabled us to build true network resilience through our network's ring topologies. The network links the commercial centre with all business parks on the periphery of the city.  Itprovides network interconnection with all key data centres in the capital and with all available local, national and global carriers.

Our network is a carrier class network designed for multi-tenant utilisation. Its specification is of the highest quality with best-in-class security, resilience, performance and latency. It is particularly suitable for high capacity data transportation and international connectivity.  Thismakes it the perfect solution for the fibre requirements of carriers, data centres and multi-national enterprises.  In addition it ensures dedicated, un-metered and completely secure, high-speed fibre connectivity for corporations in Ireland.
