mobile-phone-426559_1280eir has announced further details of its deployment of high speed broadband in rural Ireland that will offer speeds of up to 1,000 Mb/s.

In the next twelve months, 100,000 homes and businesses across 200 communities in all 26 counties will be able to access the fastest broadband speeds in Ireland.

Preparation work is already underway in some areas with tree trimming now complete in a number of locations, clearing the way for spans of new fibre cables to be installed alongside the existing roadside telecommunications infrastructure.

The announcement is part of the commitment the company made in June 2015 to extend the footprint of high speed broadband to a further 300,000 homes and businesses to reach a total of 1.9 million premises by the end of 2020.

1.4 million homes and businesses can already access high speed broadband in Ireland and the company remains on target to reach 1.7 million premises by this time next year.

Commenting on the announcement, Carolan Lennon, Managing Director open eir said: “We are the only provider with a truly national plan to connect rural communities across Ireland to high speed broadband. We already provide the fastest broadband speeds in the country and we are now extending those speeds beyond the town. Last June, we committed to extend the reach of our commercial rollout as far as possible. Our announcement today is testament to our on-going support of the economic recovery and rejuvenation of rural Ireland using best in class technology.”
