Fibre Broadband is also referred to as ‘high-speed broadband’, ‘Gigabit broadband’ or ‘next generation broadband’. It offers much higher connection speeds, and more reliable throughput of data than previous fixed line DSL or mobile broadband. By offering a greatly improved digital experience our fibre network is perfect for home users and for businesses. High-speed fibre broadband is a future-proofed technology allowing speeds up to 2Gbps today, but five times that in the future. This future proofed technology will help Ireland to thrive, but it requires a clear strategy to connect the whole country, which is why our deployment programme when finished will enable 1.9million homes and premises. Our fibre along with that of the National Broadband Plan will give almost 100% coverage, putting Ireland ahead of or on par with other European countries. Presently within our network we have two types of fibre technology.

  • Fibre to the Home (FTTH)
  • Fibre to the cabinet (FTTC)
  • Getting the most from a Fibre connection
