Our expert says

Broadband speeds in Ireland are constantly improving, with more full fibre connections than ever before.

For gamers and streamers, fibre broadband is a fast, flexible option with speeds of up to 2Gbps. This is fast enough for everyone in a large household to download a HD movie at the same time, with no lagging - but don’t fork out for a top-speed plan if you don’t need one.

If you’re in a more rural location, 4G or 5G mobile broadband could be an option, as well as a satellite or fixed wireless connection.

Providers always keep the best discounts for new customers, so it pays to switch when your contract is up. The cheapest deal may not always be the best value, so make sure you’re happy with the connection and the service. When you sign up, you have a 14 day cooling-off period to iron out any issues, when you can cancel without penalty if you need to.

If you watch TV, you can save by bundling your TV and internet together, and many packages now include streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

How to

With so many things to think about, finding the right broadband can be difficult. Here’s a no fuss ‘How to’ on four main areas: availability, speed, broadband connection and switching providers.

Find the best broadband in your area

To find the best broadband deal, you can check the broadband availability in your area with our broadband checker. If you want to know when fibre broadband might be coming to your area, you can use the online map on , eir or Siro.

Use a broadband speed test

Every broadband connection has two speed types. Download speed, to measure things like the streaming speed of music and videos, and upload speed, to measure how fast you can upload data, like sending emails.

  • You can test your broadband speed using our broadband speed test.
  • Running the test a few times, at different points in the day, will give you a more accurate idea of your speed.
  • You should also exit all programs, cancel downloads and turn off devices and appliances.

If you regularly stream movies you may want a minimum download speed of 50Mbps. .

Choose the right TV package

Research we carried out a few years ago showed that an average TV subscriber has 50-100 channels, but will watch the same 16 channels all the time. Before you choose a TV package, consider how many channels you actually watch, and what providers offer access to your favourite shows. Many providers air the same standard channels, but offer premium add-ons like streaming services and Sky cinema and Sky sports for an additional monthly cost.

Switch broadband providers

Before switching providers, you should check there are no cancellation fees with your current contract. Consider what kind of plan you need, as well as what’s available in your area.

To easily switch and save:

  1. Compare and choose the best broadband deal on
  2. Read the Plan Info to check all the details.
  3. Complete the online form.
  4. Receive a call from your new provider; give some more details.
  5. Give your current provider cancellation notice.
  6. Agree a date for switching with your new provider.
  7. Cancel any direct debits with your old provider.
