open eir adds over 22,000 premises to the fibre network in June 2016

open eir is pleased to confirm that fibre broadband became available to over 22,000 additional homes and businesses during the month of June 2016.

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

57 new cabinets have been added onto exchanges already on our fibre network, which has extended the reach of fibre broadband in 45 communities, offering speeds of up to 100 Mbps to premises connected to these cabinets and up to 2 km away.

In addition, 58 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.

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