FTTH is the lead technology we are deploying to 1.9million homes and businesses across the island of Ireland. We completed our rural deployment program in 2016 which enabled over 340K homes and businesses in rural Ireland, all of which are in a position to connect to our full fibre network via any one of our Retail Service Providers.
We continue to deploy fibre to homes and businesses in our urban deployment program, and in February 2023 we celebrated a major milestone of enabling over 1 million homes with our full fibre gigabit network, establishing open eir as the largest fastest growing full fibre network in Ireland. You can follow our progress on our rollout map.
Fibre to the Home (FTTH) means that a fibre line is connected directly into your home or business, it is a future proofed technology which today allows for speeds up to 2Gbps. What does that mean for you and your customers
- multiple devices at any time with no impact to service and speed
- no buffering
- once connected you can increase or decrease your customers speed requirements without the need to schedule a call out
- voice can run over the same line, no need for the copper connection
