The Department published the National Broadband Plan (NBP) in August 2012 and the updated Intervention Strategy in December 2015. The NBP is a Government wide initiative to deliver high speed broadband services to all businesses and households in Ireland. The NBP defines high speed broadband as a minimum speed of 30Mbps download and 6Mbps upload. This is being achieved through a combination of:
- Commercial investment by the telecommunications sector and
- A State Intervention in those areas where commercial providers acting alone will not provide this essential service
The best resource we have is our award winning interactive High Speed Broadband Map. The map and all the other resources you may need to get information on the National Broadband Plan are available below.
