Irish internet service providers

Broadband in Northern Ireland can be a very mixed bag. In some areas, such as the densely populated regions in and around Belfast and Londonderry, you’ll find a good choice of Irish providers offering fast and reliable cover. These include big names like BT, Sky and Virgin Media - the only Irish fibre provider.

In more rural areas of Northern Ireland, however, fixed-line broadband is less widely available, meaning that many people must rely on mobile coverage, if this is available.

Here’s a run-down of providers, and what you can expect from each one.

BT: BT are big in Northern Ireland, and provide almost all of the standard home broadband services that make use of the existing phone network. The brand also offers superfast fibre in densely populated areas, making the brand a popular choice for bigger and busier households.

Read the BT review.

EE: Known primarily as a mobile provider, EE offers both broadband and mobile these days. The provider has the widest geographical coverage compared to other mobile providers and reaches 88% of the country. Read the EE review.

John Lewis Broadband: Despite the brand’s upmarket reputation, John Lewis provides some of the most affordable broadband deals, with both standard and fibre services available. Read the John Lewis review.

Plusnet: If you’re in Northern Ireland, Plusnet can provide you with a broadband connection, as long as your local BT exchange is enabled. Read the Plusnet review.

Post Office: The Post Office is consistently among the cheapest providers and offers a solid basic service for your internet needs. If you want something simple with no-frills, have a closer look at this ISP. Read the Post Office review.

Sky: Sky broadband is available across most of Northern Ireland, with a choice of Sky Broadband Lite and Sky Broadband Unlimited. Use our free postcode checker to find out exactly which Sky packages are available in your area. Read the Sky review.

TalkTalk: One of the best options for the budget-conscious, TalkTalk combines low monthly costs with a Fixed Price Guarantee that means you won’t be surprised by any unexpected price increases through the term of your contract. Read the TalkTalk review.

Virgin: If you live in an area of Northern Ireland covered by Virgin broadband, you may be able to access the very fastest home broadband packages in the whole country. Virgin Media fibre optic broadband is carried by the brand’s cable network and is not only reliable but incredibly speedy. Read the Virgin review.

Is fibre-optic available across all of NI?

Yes, it’s possible to get a fibre-optic connection in some areas of Northern Ireland. Virgin Media and BT dominate the market and are available in and around the country’s largest towns and cities, including Belfast, Londonderry, Coleraine & Ballymena.

Fibre is still being rolled out across the country and new areas are getting connected to all the time.

Should I consider cheap broadband?

ISPs including The Post Office, Plusnet and John Lewis Broadband are some of the cheapest in Northern Ireland, with deals starting from £17 per month.

Choosing a deal that’s right for you, however, should never be done based on price alone. Make sure you’re paying for the right internet speed to suit the number of people in your household and the things they enjoy doing online regularly - otherwise the savings you make could be a false economy.

Finding the best cheap broadband deals in Northern Ireland is easier with our free postcode checker. We’ll show you a complete list of all of the broadband deals and special offers that you can choose from where you live. You can compare the full list, or narrow down deals based on the criteria you select.

If you’re not sure what broadband speed you need, our guide can help you make a choice depending on a number of variables.

Is mobile broadband a good alternative?

Mobile broadband may be your best option to access the internet at home in some parts of Northern Ireland. This is particularly true for people living in very rural areas that are not connected to the phone network by phone line or fibre-optic cable.

Mobile broadband uses the mobile network and reception varies, depending on what area you’re in. If there’s no coverage, mobile broadband won’t be an option either.
