About Smart

Smart Telecom is an Irish telecom service provider that has achieved great success in the Business, Government and Residential markets in Ireland since its inception in 2000.

A new Smart Telecom is ready to offer greater choice and value to Business and Residential customers and to develop the Irish Telecommunications market.

The current period of restructuring is now drawing to a close and the company is transitioning from a public company to a private company owned by the investment company Smart YuRoE Broadband (controlled by Brendan Murtagh). Smart Telecom will now focus on the business and high-end residential markets.

The restructuring of Smart Telecom is led by John F Riordan who took the role of CEO and Chairman in February 2007. Under John's leadership, Smart Telecom has a new and experienced management team.

Previously John was Chairman and CEO of UPC, the largest cable company in Europe. There he was credited with increasing operational profitability from €353M loss in 2001 to a profit in excess of 500M in 2003, and make great improvements in customer service. Prior to UPC, he was Chairman and CEO of Princes Holdings in Ireland.

Smart Telecom offers the only Next Generation Network (NGN) in Ireland - The Smart NGN.

With the Smart NGN, you can enjoy voice, data and video services nationwide.

  • Greater speeds and no contention
  • Greater responsiveness - service provision in hours rather than weeks
  • Greater reliability - Smart NGN is a Carrier Ethernet network which can carry voice, data and video using less equipment and less people than our competitors who are tied to old technology networks
  • Greater Value for Money - because we can provide our solution with less capital expenditure and less people, we pass these cost savings on to our customers.
  • Greater Flexibility - Smart Telecom customers have more choice over what they communicate (voice, data, video),and the speeds that they use.
