Virus impact over each market - telecom operators, government agencies and regulators' responses - revised forecasts for the next 5 years.
Ireland’s broadband market has developed strongly in recent years, supported by an improving economic climate which has revived investment among the key players, as well as by government efforts to improve wholesale access. In late 2018 the regulator published three decisions on wholesale access pricing resulting from its Broadband Market Review. Several ISPs, including Vodafone Ireland and Sky Ireland, provide services on a wholesale basis through the network of SIRO.
Separately, the government is investing up to €600 million on its National Broadband Plan, which will provide connections of at least 30Mb/s across the country least 30Mb/s by the end of 2022 and deliver broadband services to about 900,000 premises considered uncommercial by market players. Although the incumbent telco eir withdrew from the tender, leaving the National Broadband Ireland consortium as the sole bidder, it is completing a major government-sponsored 1Gb/s network build reaching some rural 300,000 premises. Together, these several efforts have resulted in a rejuvenated broadband sector where average download speeds are now among the highest in Europe.
This report profiles Ireland’s fixed and wireless broadband markets, together with developments in related technologies such as FttP, powerline broadband, wireless and mobile broadband, Wi-Fi and internet via satellite. It also provides subscriber forecasts to 2023.
