broadbandEnnis and Shannon are to benefit from a 100% fibre-to-the-building  broadband network offering speeds from 200 Mbps to 1000 Mbps.

ESB and Vodafone have signed an innovative joint venture agreement to invest €450 million in rolling out the infrastructure to 50 Irish towns.

The fibre will be deployed on ESB’s existing overhead and underground infrastructure.

Subject to European Commission approval, the 50:50 joint venture will begin rolling-out the new network across Ireland in the coming months, with the first customers able to avail of 100% fibre broadband from the start of 2015. The initial phase of the project is expected to be fully rolled-out by the end of 2018, with scope for a second phase under the joint venture.
