open eir is pleased to confirm that fibre broadband became available to over 13,000 additional homes and businesses during the month of May.

This is part of our commitment to deliver the most extensive high-speed fibre broadband network in Ireland.

 

30 new cabinets have been added onto exchanges already on our fibre network, which has extended the reach of fibre broadband in 21 communities, offering speeds of up to 100 Mbps to premises connected to these cabinets and up to 2 km away.

In addition, 35 communities who have been added to the fibre network for the first time. Homes and businesses directly connected to these exchanges, and within 1.5km, will benefit from speeds of up to 70 Mbps.

This month also saw the addition of over 500 homes and businesses with Fibre to the Home (FTTH) technology, bringing the total number of premises on the open eir network with access to speeds of up to 1 Gbps to over 30,000.

Customers in the areas listed below can contact their preferred supplier to find out what speeds are available to them.
