For many years Ireland's broadband market was underdeveloped by European standards, although government efforts to improve local loop unbundling and wholesale access has meant that growth, albeit from a relatively low base, has been strong in recent years. Separate efforts undertaken by Eircom, UPC Ireland and Vodafone/ESB, as well as a small number of small-scale fibre operators, has resulted in a rejuvenated broadband sector where average download speeds are now among the highest in Europe. The National Broadband Plan, underpinned by government investment of about 500 million, will see services extended to some 900,000 premises considered uncommercial by market players.

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, WiFi and internet via satellite. It also provides forecasts for broadband uptake to 2020.

Key developments:
Eircom delivers 100Mb/s services to over a million premises; National Broadband Plan expected to go to tender by end-2015; Vodafone and ESB connect premises for their 1Gb/s fibre trials, aiming to reach 450,000 premises; UPC launches a 500Mb/s service; Next Generational Broadband Taskforce set up for broadband roadmap; government pursues NewEra' National Recovery Program; Eircom begins deploying DSL vectoring; Ka-band spotbeam technology available to Digiweb Tooway, Eircom and SBI satellite; revised National Broadband Plan to deliver 30Mb/s nationally; Eircom's eFiber service to pass 70% or premises by mid-2016; BT Ireland returns to broadband market; recovery in the number of WiFi hotspots and access points; Sky launches 100Mb/s fibre broadband service; regulator rules that Eircom make fibre networks available to altnets; regulator market data updates to Q4 2014; telcos' operating and financial data to Q4 2014; recent market developments.
