open eir’s Fibre Rollout in Co. Louth
open eir is investing €400 million in upgrading its open access national telecommunications network, bringing high-speed broadband to 1.9 million homes and businesses nationwide by the end of 2020.
open eir is the open access network division of eir.
As part of our ongoing engagement with communities both large and small, urban and rural, across the country, open eir’s team (including eir CEO Richard Moat) visited An Táin Arts Centre, Dundalk Town Hall, Crowe St, Dundalk, Co. Louth, Monday 18th April to update businesses, community leaders, chambers, associates, Councillors and TDs on the service and the benefits high speed broadband brings to businesses and the local community. In addition, we outlined our plans with regard to supporting Government with the National Broadband Plan.
As expected we had huge support from both TDs, Councillors, business owners and residents, thank you to all of the Louth residents who came to our event, we do hope that you found it informative.
To date more than 42,000 homes and businesses in Co. Louth have been empowered by our fibre broadband network and a further estimated 10,500 Louth premises will be able to access uncongested broadband with speeds of up to 100Mbps. In addition to our Fibre to the Cabinet deployment, Louth will benefit from our Fibre to the Home rural extension which will enable an additional 300,000 premises nationwide.
