Can I have two broadband providers?

Generally there is only 1 broadband provider that can supply your home. If you wish to have more than one broadband provider your choices are:-

  1. have a second telephone line installed and then choose an alternative broadband provider for your second line
  2. if you are in a cable area you could have one broadband provider using cable and another using telephone line. Currently only Virgin Media supplies cable broadband in Ireland

How do I change broadband provider?

You can choose another provider by using our broadband comparison tool and selecting your preferences. Once you place your order your new broadband provider will complete the steps needed to make the change from your old provider if both use your telephone line. If you are switching either to or from a cable provider such as Virgin Media you will need to have your new provider in place before you cancel your old provider to avoid a service interruption.

Which provider has the best broadband deal in Ireland?

The best broadband deal for you will depend on a number of factors, including your usage habits, the size of your home, your budget and where you live.

For example, if you live in a small, quiet home and only use the internet for watching Netflix, streaming Spotify and chatting to friends, you might be more than happy with a connection that’s 100 Mbps or under.

However, if you live in a big, busy home with numerous devices streaming content at the same time, you might prefer a very powerful 360 Mbps or 1,000 Mbps connection, if these are available in your area.

You might also want to bundle your broadband with a TV and home phone plan, or you might be happy with a broadband-only deal.
