In late 2016 we launched our Rural Fibre roll out program.

We committed to delivering a full high speed fibre network to over 300K rural homes and premises.

We are delighted to say that this program completed in December 2019 and now over 340K homes and premises in rural Ireland have access to our full fibre high speed network.

We know from speaking with our retail service providers that many of you are now enjoying the benefits of this fibre network – in fact over 40% of all homes and premises have connected to this fibre network to-date.

For those homes and premises that were not included in this programme, you may still be able to avail of our Standard copper products which deliver speeds up to 100Mbs, you will need to check with your provider of choice.

Or indeed you may well be included in the NBP programme which is presently rolling out a full fibre services which open eir are happy to support with our existing infrastructure of poles and ducts, to check if you are included in this program please visit

Understanding the demand for a reliable high speed network, our investment and upgrade program continues at pace with the deployment of a full fibre high speed network to an additional 1.4 million homes and premises. These homes and premises are located in towns and cities with more than 1,000 number of residents. To date we have completed over 100K homes across all 32 counties.

To understand what your home / premises can avail of we are currently developing an eircode checker and visual interactive map, in the meantime, please keep checking back with us or contact your preferred retail service provider.

Thank you for your patience

Kind regards
The open eir team
