What do I need to know about the different types of broadband?

ADSL/ADSL2 broadband

Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) broadband uses an existing home phone line to provide an internet connection of up to 24Mbps.

As this technology uses the phone line in your home, you’ll need a home phone line installed in order to avail of it. It’s also important to note that your distance from the nearest telephone exchange and the quality of your phone connection could impact your speed.

Providers of ADSL broadband include Digiweb, eir, Pure Telecom, Sky, and Vodafone, and introductory prices start at €25 per month. This type of broadband is generally good for those in rural areas as anyone with a phone line can avail of it.

Cable broadband

Cable broadband is another name for fibre broadband - with cable broadband, broadband is delivered to your home using fibre-optic cables. The fastest type of fibre connection is Fibre-to-the-Home, but Fibre-to-the-Cabinet is more common and can still offer speeds up to 500Mbps.

At present, cable broadband is available from many providers, such as eir, Digiweb, Magnet, Sky, Virgin Media, and Vodafone. The likes of SIRO, eir, enet and Virgin Media are continually working to roll out superfast speeds across Ireland, which means it’s getting easier and cheaper than ever to access high-speed internet.

However, in certain rural areas throughout the country, some fibre & superfast broadband packages still may not be available. If the broadband you want is not currently available in your area, consider the other types of broadband that are available - for example satellite broadband or ADSL - and see if one of these might work for you.

Fibre broadband

Fibre broadband is the quickest type of broadband connection, and as a result it can be more expensive than the likes of ADSL broadband.

With fibre broadband, broadband is delivered to your home using fibre-optic cables. The fastest type of fibre connection is Fibre-to-the-Home, which brings the fibre cables directly into your home - this can currently deliver speeds of up to 1,000Mbps.

Other connections are known as Fibre-to-the-Cabinet, which delivers fibre to your nearest cabinet and then usually uses copper cables to bring the connection to your home. Speeds from up to 100Mbps up to 500Mbps are available through these types of connections from the likes of eir, Sky, Virgin Media and Vodafone. The actual speed you get will depend on your provider and your distance from the cabinet.

This type of broadband suits consumers who require fast speeds, but want to get broadband without having a phone line installed.

Mobile broadband

Mobile broadband means mobile internet access which is provided to customers through a mobile phone signal.

As the technology used to provide mobile broadband is the same as the one that lets you use your mobile phone, many mobile network carriers offer mobile broadband via mobile dongles and 4G SIMs. Dongles can enable mobile broadband access on laptops and PCs, while 4G SIM cards can be used to gain access to the internet on a tablet.

Mobile broadband can be useful for people who need access to the internet on the move, however bear in mind that if your mobile phone signal is bad where you live, you’ll likely get poor mobile broadband signal, too.

You’ll also need to keep an eye on data allowances if you opt for a mobile broadband plan, as these can be quite low, and the charges for going above the limit tend to be steep.

Satellite broadband

Satellite broadband is set up in a household through the installation of a satellite dish, and provides speeds of up to 50Mbps.

Although it is slower than other types of broadband, satellite broadband is that it can provide an internet connection to any home - this can be particularly important in rural areas, where laying cables is not possible. Unlike other broadband, satellite packages will have a cap on downloads - at the moment, these range from 10-100GB per month.

The type of broadband you have will impact on the speeds you can get. While fibre connections are generally fastest, if these are not available where you live, you may need to opt for a different type of connection.

Compare broadband, TV & phone deals in Clare

Some people find that bundling products - i.e. getting phone, broadband and TV from the one provider - works out better for them, as they only have to deal with one provider for all of these services. It’s also possible to get decent discounts by opting to bundle.

TV & broadband packages

If you can’t live without your TV package, consider bundling this up with your broadband - it’s almost always cheaper to get your broadband, TV and phone in one big package. You can easily compare the best TV and broadband plans in Clare and find a plan to suit you.

Broadband only - with no phone included
