What is the fastest broadband in Kildare?

There are seven providers that offer fibre broadband in Kildare.

  • eir
  • Sky
  • Virgin Media
  • Vodafone
  • Pure Telecom
  • Digiweb
  • Regional Broadband

You can find out whether your town has fibre broadband by using the dropdown filter at the top of the page.

SIRO and Virgin Media have both rolled out their networks fairly widely across Kildare, and speeds of up to 1,000Mbps are available where those networks are in operation.

However, if you don’t happen to be in one of these areas, it’s likely you’ll still be able to get a part fibre connection from one of the other providers.

What is the cheapest broadband in Kildare?

Price is one of the main things people compare when choosing a broadband package. We all want a good deal and nobody wants to pay over the odds for their household services. Luckily, there are many deals to choose from in the Irish broadband market at the moment, as providers roll out new offers all the time to compete with each other. Introductory offers are particularly good, and you can save hundreds of Euro if you switch.

However, before you choose the cheapest deal, make sure you look at all of the plan features so you can be confident it’s suitable for your needs.

How do I compare broadband deals in Kildare?

Before signing up to any deal, it’s really important to compare all of the broadband deals available in your area to make sure you get the best broadband package for you. Think about the price, broadband speed and contract length and consider whether or not you want to bundle your broadband with other products - like TV or phone - too.

Broadband types in Kildare

Depending on what you’re looking for, there are a wide variety of different home broadband options available in Kildare. The type of broadband you go for will have an impact on the price and speeds you can get.

What are 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 Part Fibre (Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) is more common but can still offer decent connection speeds.

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 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 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/Part Fibre broadband

Fibre broadband is the quickest type of broadband connection, bit it can also be more expensive than the likes of ADSL broadband.

Fibre broadband, which is sometimes called Fibre-to-the-home or Fibre-to-the-premises, is delivered to your home using fibre-optic cables and offers the fastest connection speeds of up to 1,000Mbps.

Part Fibre, which is sometimes called Fibre-to-the-Cabinet, delivers fibre to your nearest cabinet and then usually uses copper cables to bring the connection to your home. The actual speed you’ll get from Part Fibre depends on your provider and your distance from the cabinet. Part Fibre is from the likes of eir, Sky, Virgin Media and Vodafone.

Fibre and Part Fibre 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.

Why is the type of broadband and deal I want not available in my area?

Although Kildare is well-served in terms of broadband options, if a certain type of broadband is not available in your area, it is likely because the broadband providers don’t have the infrastructure in place to service where you live just yet.

With the continuing rollout of broadband from the likes of SIRO, eir and Virgin Media, it’s getting easier and cheaper than ever to access high-speed internet - so if you’re not able to avail of lightning fast speeds just yet, hopefully they’ll be coming your way soon.

Best broadband packages in Kildare

If you’re used to getting your phone, TV and broadband from the one provider, you might want to opt for a package like this again - combining all of the elements into one manageable bill can be convenient, and you will generally get the best discounts if you opt to do so, too.

Phone and Broadband Deals

In terms of the best broadband and phone deals, you’ll need to think about what types of numbers you want to be able to call (i.e. landlines, mobiles or both) and whether you need an unlimited call plan or are happy with a set number of minutes.

Broadband Only Deals

If you’re happy with a standalone broadband product, and you don’t want to have a landline or traditional TV plan, you could opt for a broadband-only plan. There are loads of options in Kildare and with the quality of streaming services nowadays, ditching the TV plan doesn’t mean going without great content.

Broadband and TV Deals

If you can’t live without TV, take a look at the TV and broadband packages available. It’s very likely that you will make bigger savings by opting for a broadband and TV package, rather than signing up to them both separately. You could also decide to add on extra sports or movie channels if you like, depending on what your needs are.
