Eir said today that its Gigabit Fibre Network is now available to customers in 79 towns and villages across Ireland, from Co Donegal to Co Kerry, as the network's expansion continues.
Along with the company's rural fibre rollout programme, which was completed in 2019, Eir said that over 800,000 premises across Ireland can now access superfast fibre broadband.
Fibre to the Home (FTTH) provides faster, stronger and more reliable broadband connectivity than other technologies. Customers are now using Eir's fibre network for remote working, video conferencing, downloading games and streaming movies.
Ireland's Fibre Network is a key part of Eir's €1 billion capital investment programme to build the very best network for its customers here.
Once complete, it will cover more than 85% of the premises in Ireland and ultimately will see 1.4 million homes and businesses benefit from fibre to home access.
Eir CEO Carolan Lennon said that fibre connectivity has become an essential part of life for many of us.
It is the instrument through which we conduct our work, our entertainment, our education and our social lives," Ms Lennon said.
"Eir is proud to build and deliver this essential service and we are particularly proud of our dedicated team of engineers who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to ensure we can provide a reliable, superfast broadband connection to more people and businesses across Ireland," she added.
