Our expert says

Broadband speeds in Ireland are constantly improving with more deals, bundles and ways to connect than ever before.

For gamers and streamers, fibre broadband is a fast, flexible option with speeds of up to 1Gbps. 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. It could also mean less lag time, better customer service and exclusive offers. The cheapest deal may not always be the best value though, so make sure to check contract length, connection speeds and price after discounts.

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 gov.ie , 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. .

Get broadband with no landline

Some broadband connections require a phone line, but many providers offer packages that use a phone cable but don’t charge you for a call plan.

There are alternatives if you can’t have a phone line, such as full fibre, mobile, or satellite.

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 Switcher.ie.
  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.
