Hibernia Media asserts its diverse network footprint will provide reliability and high capacity to RTÉ's news coverage and program making.

The company also says its network will provide RTÉ with secure connectivity from major media hubs throughout Europe and the United States via its northern transatlantic low-latency route. By leveraging Hibernia Atlantic's Ireland network, which connects Northern Ireland and the island of Ireland directly to Europe and North America, RTÉ is able to link its Dublin broadcasting center to the European Parliament in Brussels, as well as to the BT Tower in London. It also will have high-capacity connections from global media and broadcasting entities such as the BBC.

The added capacity also connects RTÉ's Dublin facility securely across the Atlantic to Washington, DC, where it connects to major United States’ news feeds.
