About NBI

National Broadband Ireland (NBI) is designing, building and operating the new high-speed fibre broadband network for rural Ireland. NBI’s team brings together some of the most talented individuals in Ireland and across the world, with deep knowledge and experience in delivering projects to the scale of the NBP. This includes developing, building and operating networks and coordinating all the elements required to finance and deliver a project of the size and complexity of Ireland’s NBP.

We were established by Granahan McCourt, an international investor in technology, media and telecommunications. For over 30 years, Granahan McCourt has partnered with governments, corporations and communities to connect people through innovation in technologically underserved areas of the world.

Our partners include KN Group, Secto and Actavo. Nokia is providing all the active equipment for the project while 4Site is our network design partner. We are also working with infrastructure owners such as eir (pole and ducts network) and ESB. We will be responsible for the management of the new national broadband network for the next 25 years.
