* 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. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up - this may differ from the speed displayed in the table. Broadband, home phone and digital TV products are subject to availability at your location.

Compare Broadband deals in Rathorgan

Not all Irish broadband providers’ plans will be available in Rathorgan, but there are still lots of options to choose from, so you’ll need to think about what’s important to you before you choose a deal.

Research shows the three most important things people consider when they’re looking for a broadband deal are price, broadband speed and the length of the contract, so comparing these things could be a good place to start.

Broadband providers Rathorgan

There are 5 internet providers offering broadband packages in Rathorgan, including:

The right broadband package for you will depend on your household’s needs. When you’re thinking about providers, you should consider whether you want to opt for a package - including TV or phone - or you’re happy with broadband-only.

Broadband Packages Rathorgan

You can get decent discounts by opting to bundle your TV and/or phone with your broadband, and some people also find it convenient that they only have to deal with one provider for all of these services, rather than dealing with several.

Broadband and Phone deals

When you’re comparing packages, think about the type of phone plan you need, the broadband speed you want and the price of the plan. All of these factors can help you to decide what the best broadband and phone deal is for you.

TV and Broadband Deals

If you like to get your TV and broadband from the same provider, there are lots of plans out there, so you should find one to suit you. There are also added extras you can consider, like Sky Sports, Sky Cinema or multi-room viewing, so make sure you think about all of these options before signing up.

Broadband-only deals

If you’re not interested in going for a bundled package, and think that a broadband-only plan would work for you, we’ve got information on the best standalone broadband plans in Rathorgan. Remember, with the advent of streaming services like Netflix or NOW TV, opting for a broadband-only plan doesn’t mean you have to go without great content.

Broadband speeds Rathorgan

Most of us want the fastest broadband available - speed is generally the most important factor that people consider when comparing broadband, after price.

The likes of SIRO, eir 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.

In Rathorgan, one of the packages with the highest broadband speed is available from Vodafone with the Simply Broadband 24Mb + Home Essentials plan offering download speeds of up to 24Mb for €50 a month.

What broadband is available in Rathorgan?

If you’re looking for home broadband in Rathorgan, there are plenty of different broadband options to choose from. Remember, the type of broadband you have will impact on the speeds you can get, so carefully consider this before signing up.

What do the different types of broadband mean?

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 360Mbps.

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 360Mbps 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 really useful, especially 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 30Mbps.

Although it is slower than other types of broadband, the major benefit of 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 8-50GB per month.

One of the the main providers of satellite broadband in Ireland is Europasat.

Wireless broadband

Wireless broadband is a term that’s widely used - some people use it to refer to broadband that you can connect to via WiFi (so multiple devices can be connected at any one time), while others use it as another way to describe mobile broadband.

When we’re talking about broadband that you can connect to via WiFi, this works by using a wireless router, which converts an incoming signal and transmits it throughout your home. This signal is then picked up by any wireless-enabled devices within the transmission area, enabling them to connect to the wireless broadband.

The vast majority of broadband providers these days will provide a router to allow you to connect many devices to your home broadband via WiFi.

Cheapest broadband Rathorgan

The cheapest broadband package in Rathorgan is the Vodafone Simply Broadband 24Mb plan from Vodafone, which costs €25 for the first 6 months, and €45 thereafter.

The Irish broadband market is extremely competitive at the moment, with many internet providers offering significant introductory discounts to consumers signing up with them. This means that, if you’re signing up to a new broadband package, you should have some great deals to choose from.

The broadband deal I want is not available in Rathorgan

In certain rural areas throughout the country, some fibre & superfast broadband packages may not be available yet. If the broadband you want is not currently available in of Rathorgan, take a look at the other types of broadband that are available - for example satellite broadband - and see if one of these might work for you.
