About Us

Digitalforge is a small Irish-owned dynamic company with many combined years of experience. Founded in 2004 to address the lack of high-speed connectivity in Schull, we have grown and spread to many parts of West Cork.

We’re proud to use solar and wind energy to power both our masts and our office. We use batteries as a backup with 24/7 network monitoring our tools to ensure the network stays live even during the roughest West Cork winters.

Not being constrained by out-of-date infrastructure and being a small company, has enabled us to be nimble and deploy the latest Wireless technologies soon after reaching the market. As a result, we can offer some of the fastest wireless speeds provided in the country to some of the most remote locations in the country.

Over the past 20 years, the company has been increasing the coverage areas and network speeds to bring reliable, competitively priced phone and broadband to more areas of West Cork via 32+ base stations.

Our Team

Digitalforge began in May 2004 when Brendan Hurley, a native of Schull who had returned after nearly 20 years abroad, discovered that no Broadband was available in Schull, or indeed most rural parts of West Cork.

Brendan drew on his years of experience as a Cisco, Microsoft, and Red Hat certified computer professional, with years of training and expertise on numerous platforms for companies large and small in London, New York, Dublin, and Auckland. He put all those years of knowledge to work in building a Wireless Broadband Network for his hometown and surrounds.
