National Broadband Plan

The National Broadband Plan (NBP) is a Government sponsored initiative to bring minimum 30 megabit broadband to all premises in Ireland.

open eir is committed to delivering fibre broadband to 1.9 million homes and businesses across Ireland.

However, while we are doing much more than any operator, approximately 20% of homes and businesses – the vast majority in rural Ireland – will still require access to high speed broadband.

The reason is straightforward – while the cost to roll out rural fibre broadband is high, our density of rural population is one of the lowest in Europe.

Consequently – as in all countries – it is a huge challenge to provide high speed broadband to every home in the country without financial support from Government.

Approximately 80% of the country will be able to access our network, the remaining 20% of homes and businesses fall under the Government’s National Broadband Plan (NBP).
