Interactive Map

The High Speed Broadband Map identifies locations and premises as being AMBER, BLUE or LIGHT BLUE. 

We update the map on a quarterly basis. The most recent update shows the progress to Q3 2019 and the outcome of the mapping consultation.

  • AMBER areas - are the target areas for the State intervention of the National Broadband Plan. 
  • BLUE areas - where commercial operators are delivering or have indicated plans to deliver high speed broadband services. Operators are continuing to enhance their services in these areas to improve access to high speed broadband. Please contact us at Broadband@DCCAE.gov.ie to let us know if you cannot get high speed broadband from the providers in your area.  It would be helpful if you could advise the Department of any operators you may have contacted.    
  • LIGHT BLUE areas - areas where eir has committed to commercial rural deployment plans to rollout high speed broadband to 300,000 premises.

Please visit our FAQ page to find out what this means for you. A snapshot of each county is available in our County Coverage Statistics.

You can find your premises on the interactive map by:

Broadband Connection Points

Broadband Connection Points are key NBP locations in communities across Ireland.  Approximately 300  Broadband Connection Points will receive an early connection in the roll out of the NBP.  This will ensure there is a high speed service within communities while the larger NBP deployment continues. 

These are the categories of the Broadband Connection Points:

1. A business centre, situated in a public building which provides access to a local businesses that may otherwise have to commute to access required broadband services  

2. A hot-desk facility which is open business hours or on demand within business hours              

3. A facility with limited public access which might be open a couple of hours a day or a few days a week

4. A local Wi-Fi hub with 'always on' Wi-Fi
