Information on National Broadband Plan
The National Broadband Plan is a Government strategy designed to deliver high speed broadband services to all businesses and households in Ireland. The National Broadband Plan defines High Speed broadband as a minimum speeds of 30Mbps download and 6Mbps upload.
This is being achieved through a combination of:
· Commercial investment by the telecommunications sector and
· A State intervention in those areas where commercial providers acting alone will not provide this essential service
You can log on to an interactive map www.broadband.gov.ie and use your Eircode to check if your property is situated in an area;
· which is currently served by a commercial provider (dark blue)
· will be served by the end of 2018 under the current Eir fibre deployment (light blue)
· or will be served under the National Broadband State intervention phase (Amber)
If you are in the Eir fibre light blue area you can log on to www.fibrerollout.ie and enter your eircode to get an indication of when your property will be served.
If you are in an area which is indicated on the map as being currently served by a high speed broadband commercial provider and you have been informed by operators that they cannot provide such a service or if your service is less than the minimum speed of 30 Mbps speeds please email the Department of Communications, Climate Change and Environment at firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and they will escalate with the suppliers.
If you are in an area which is indicated as being covered under the Eir rollout and the rollout is complete but you are still unable to get a high speed broadband connection again please contact the Department of Communications at email@example.com with your details and they will escalate with Eir.
