* The "download" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange.

Broadband Only Explained

What is broadband only?

Broadband only is a broadband without a phone or TV. Most broadband providers in Ireland do require a phone line to install your broadband service, which means finding a true broadband-only deal with no phone line difficult.

Best Broadband Only Deals

Broadband Only Provider Plan Name Total Cost - Year 1
Vodafone Simply Broadband €420
Digiweb Fibre Broadband Home €492.40
Magnet Fatpipe Fibre 100 €520
Pure Telecom Purely Broadband €572
eir fibre solo + eir sport €675.87

Can I get broadband without a phone line?

You can, but the choice is limited. Virgin Media is the only major Irish provider that offers a “true” broadband-only plan without a phone line as they supply the broadband via their cable network.

The majority of broadband only deals offered by Irish providers do need an active phone line to deliver a broadband connection. Broadband providers charge for this line rental which is included in the monthly advertised price - even if you don’t use a home phone.

What is the cheapest broadband only deal?

The cheapest broadband only plan is from Vodafone with their Vodafone Simply Broadband plan which costs only €25 for the first 6 months, and €40 thereafter.

What is the fastest broadband only deal?

The Naked 500 plan from Virgin Media is one of the fastest plan with speeds of up to 500Mb.

Does fibre optic broadband use a phone line?

Yes. Most fibre connections in Ireland are Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) which means the majority of your broadband connection would be fibre optic. The fibre connection is delivered to your nearest cabinet or exchange, and then the part between your home and the cabinet is brought by the older copper cables.

That’s why line rental is almost always included in a broadband package. The line rental cost is included in the overall monthly price, which means it’s usually not possible to separate out the phone line cost even if you don’t use it.

I do not want a phone line, just broadband only

There are three main alternatives:

  • Super-fast fibre broadband: uses underground glass or plastic cables which deliver fibre directly to your home, so there is no need for a phone line. It is the is the fastest type of fibre connection with speeds of up to 1,000Mbps. At the moment, Virgin Media is one of the main providers that offers home broadband without needing to install a phone line.

  • Mobile or 4G broadband: uses your mobile phone signal to connect to the internet. It is one of the cheapest types of broadband connections but can be restricted by data limits and speed. It’s often slower and less reliable than a wired internet connection, but it is landline-free. You need a USB dongle, a SIM card or a mobile internet device to get online.

  • Satellite: is ideal for rural areas where broadband cables have not been laid. The broadband signal is beamed from a satellite to a dish fitted to your home. Speed is slower and connectivity is variable and the setup costs are more expensive than other broadband types.

If you’re happy to get your broadband via phoneline, but simply don’t want a phone package added onto your broadband deal, there are plenty of providers to choose from, such as eir, Pure Telecom, and Vodafone.

What’s the difference between line rental, phone line & phone packages?

Line rental is the monthly fee you to pay in to have a phone line. This cost is bundled in with the price of your monthly broadband. The cost line rental is no longer separate from the cost of broadband.

Phone line package or phone package mostly refers to the call bundles you can add to your broadband plan. If you use your home phone to use for calls then a phone package can save you money.

Is broadband only cheaper?

Many broadband providers such as eir, Sky and Vodafone include a call package with the cost of your broadband, so it might be cheaper to keep your broadband and phone combined. Broadband only deals may not always be cheaper.
