Broadband in Northern Ireland

Broadband in Northern Ireland can be a very mixed bag. In some areas, such as those more densely populated regions in and around Belfast and Londonderry you may find that there are plenty of different Irish broadband providers for you to choose from. Sadly, in other more rural areas of Northern Ireland, broadband is often less widely available.

Irish broadband providers

In areas with good broadband coverage you may find that you’ll have a very wide choice of Irish broadband providers to choose from. These providers include some of the very biggest names in broadband including BT, Sky and Irish fibre optic broadband provider Virgin Media. In other areas you may find that fixed line broadband is less available and you may then have to consider instead opting for one of the Irish mobile broadband providers.

BT broadband

One of your best options may be BT broadband in Northern Ireland. The Northern Ireland BT presence is quite high, especially for its standard home broadband services that are carried over the home phone network. In other areas, usually those in more densely populated urban areas such as Bangor, Belfast, Coleraine and Londonderry you may also be able to receive BT Superfast Fibre.

Sky broadband

Sky broadband in Northern Ireland also enjoys a good level of availability. In areas of Northern Ireland that fall within the Sky network area you should be able to choose between Sky Broadband Lite and Sky Broadband Unlimited. To find out exactly which Sky broadband packages are available in your area of Northern Ireland you should use our free postcode checker at the top of this page.

Virgin broadband

If you live in a Virgin broadband area of Northern Ireland then you may be able to subscribe to the very fastest home broadband packages available in the whole country. These packages are Virgin Media fibre optic broadband, and all are carried to homes by means of the Virgin Media cable network. To find out whether you live in a Virgin Media Northern Ireland cable area, and to check which packages are available, you can use our free postcode checker at the top of this page. Once you do we’ll be able to give you a good idea of the top speed you could expect as a Virgin Media customer. We’ll also be able to show the details of any special offers or deals that you can get.

Fibre optic broadband rollout

Fibre optic broadband in Northern Ireland is dominated by Virgin Media and BT. The availability of these two services is mainly concentrated around the areas in and around Northern Ireland’s largest towns and cities, including Belfast, Londonderry, Coleraine & Ballymena.

Northern Ireland fibre optic broadband rollout is an ongoing process, with new areas becoming connected to one Northern Ireland fibre optic network or another each month. To find out if fibre optic broadband has reached your part of Northern Ireland yet please use the postcode checker that you’ll find at the top of the page and, once the results have loaded, select “fibre optic” under the broadband type on the left hand side of the filter.

Cheapest broadband

The cheapest broadband in Northern Ireland can be quite subjective. Some cheap Northern Ireland broadband packages may be too slow for one person’s needs, but more than adequate for another’s. Likewise, some of Northern Ireland’s cheapest broadband deals may not have a sufficiently large usage allowance to let you to do everything you need to be able to do online.

To find the best cheap deals on broadband in Northern Ireland try our postcode checker above. Doing so will let us show you a complete list of all of the broadband deals and special offers that you have to choose from. You can then compare the full list, or add specific criteria to the filter to narrow your search down quickly and easily.

Mobile broadband

In some areas of Northern Ireland mobile broadband may be your best option. With Northern Irish mobile broadband you don’t need to be connected to a phone line or a fibre optic cable as your broadband will come via the mobile network. This is great if you live in a rural area that isn’t connected to the phone network in the traditional way, but if there is no mobile broadband coverage in your area then mobile broadband won’t be an option for you either.

Broadband availability

As outlined above there are some critical factors that govern the availability of broadband in Northern Ireland. These factors include the topography and geography of Northern Ireland and the widespread variations in the density of the population.
