open eir is pleased to confirm that fibre broadband became available to over 10,000 new homes and businesses during the month of April. This is part of open eir’s commitment to delivering the most extensive fibre network in Ireland. These additions represent 24 communities who have been added to the fibre network for the first time. This means that homes and businesses within 1.5km of these exchanges will benefit from speeds of up to 70 Mbps. In addition 29 new cabinets have extended the reach of fibre broadband in 18 communities already on the network, offering speeds of up to 100Mbps.

This month also saw the addition of over 100 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 nearly 30,000.
