Before comparing deals, it’s a good idea to work out what features you need first. Here are some things to consider:
What broadband speed do you need? If you don’t know, our guide, Broadband speeds in Ireland covers average speeds and the speed needed for different activities.
What type of connection do you want? Your location may limit your options, and the type will also affect the maximum speed you can get.
What type of broadband package do you want? You can choose from a broadband-only plan or bundle a home phone and or TV with it.
What is your budget? It’s good to know what you can afford for one or more services and try and find a plan within your budget. Check for the follow on price after any discounted period.
What contract length do you want? You’ll pay more for a short term rolling contract but have no ties. Most plans are 12 or 18 months long and include a discount period.
Types of broadband packages
The broadband package that’s right for you will depend on your usage and whether you need additional services.
Broadband-only: This means no home phone or TV package, just a broadband service. There’s often less choice because many providers offer a phone as standard, but we can show you broadband-only deals.
Broadband & home phone: Adding a landline service makes sense for most people and you’ll get some calls included for free, so find the best call package and broadband speed for you.
Broadband, phone & TV: You stand to save the biggest amount by bundling these three services together. Make sure each element offers what you need e.g. entertainment channels and free calls. There are also add-ons to choose from like Sky Sports, multi-room viewing and international calls.
