Where and when is the National Broadband Plan being rolled out?

We recognise that citizens and communities want to know when connectivity on the NBI network will be possible. Therefore, we publish our deployment plans on a rolling 24 month basis. Our website ( is updated to reflect the progress and provide indicative timelines on survey, design and go-live dates at an individual Eircode level.

NBI continues to operate in an extremely unpredictable COVID-19 environment which is creating some challenges for the survey and build elements of the project, and as a result, we are not able to publish deployment plans beyond the 24 month time horizon, at this time. However, we remain fully committed to deploying the infrastructure within the planned 7 years.

What’s involved in the network build?

Surveying – Physical surveys of townlands are required to examine the existing pole and duct network for inclusion in the design.

Design – NBI’s detailed design process confirms infrastructure, power and footprint required, drawings, openeir works, Local Authority requirements and revised cost analysis.

Build – After the designs have been approved, pre-works begin, followed by
the main works on the ground: readying existing infrastructure, upgrading and adding poles and ducts, laying fibre, preparing backhaul facilities, fulfilling Local Authority requirements and tree trimming. NBI “passes” the premises with fibre.

Order your connection – Once build is complete an order can then be placed with a retail broadband provider who is registered to sell on the NBI™ network.
If you’re signed up for notifications, we’ll let you know via email
when your premises will be ready for order.

Getting Connected – NBI will connect your premises on behalf of your preferred retail broadband provider.
