Connecting the Real Republic: Viatel Delivers Gig Connectivity to Republic of Work

Updated: Feb 10, 2021

Under normal circumstances, Republic of Work on Cork’s South Mall is a hive of activity. A steady stream of members pops in for meetings, boot camps or a few hours’ hard graft. A flexible coworking space, Republic of Work promises prospective members a haven where they will do their most productive work ever. Listed first and foremost on the list of membership benefits is access to the 1GB fibre WiFi delivered by Viatel.

A vital facility

With hot desks, business lounges, conference rooms and even a podcast studio, facilities at Republic of Work are state-of-the-art. General Manager, Frank Brennan, explains that the Viatel connection underpins it all, “We don't have a business without good WiFi. Our members are always logged on. A powerful Internet connection is as crucial a facility as the chairs- and the coffee!”

Preferred network partner

Crucially, the people at Republic of Work point out that the real core of the Republic is the community and business network. Frank Brennan explains that “We’re an incubator, we want our members to outgrow us and move onto their own places and spaces.” Every new and growing business has needs . “We’re always on the lookout for companies like Viatel that we can happily refer onto our network as a pre-approved partner. We trust Viatel to take care of our members and help them on their way.”

The drive to connect

Damien McCann, Head of Sales and Marketing at Viatel, believes the two companies are a great match. “The team at Republic of Work has great energy and that suits us. The beauty of Viatel is that we are fast on our feet. The awful mind-numbing slowness and red tape of the old school telecoms companies couldn’t be further from our reality. As a business, we are going places and we want to work with companies with the same drive and ambition. We thrive on supporting fellow Irish businesses that are on the up which is why we love meeting with Republic of Work members.”
