Eircom expands fibre target

29 Nov 2013

Irish incumbent Eircom today announced an increase to its planned national fibre footprint from 1.2 million homes and businesses to 1.4 million homes and businesses across Ireland. This means that by July 2016, 70% of the country should have access to fibre broadband speeds of up to 100Mbps via the network. Eircom’s fibre rollout programme is currently ahead of schedule and the company is on track to pass 700,000 premises by the end of the year. Today’s announcement means that an additional 562 communities across all 26 counties will be able to avail of the operator’s ‘eFibre’ high speed service.
