Fixed broadband subscriptions in Ireland reached 1.34 million at the end of the third quarter, up 0.8 percent from the previous quarter and up 3.6 percent year-on-year, according to the latest quarterly market report from regulator ComReg. Average fixed broadband speeds also continued to increase, with 62.5 percent of all fixed broadband subscriptions equal to or greater than 30 Mbps, up from 54.2 percent in the year-earlier quarter. In addition, over three quarters (76.5 percent) of Irish home broadband connections are over 10 Mbps and nearly one in four home connections are over 100 Mbps. However, Ireland remains one of the most expensive countries in the EU for home broadband, with an average bill of EUR 35.44 compared to EUR 28.11 in the UK and EUR 23.62 in Denmark.

Conversely, the country is among the cheapest for mobile users, with prepaid bills costing an average EUR 9.21 per month compared to EUR 22.22 in Spain and EUR 19.04 in the Netherlands. The average monthly mobile bill (contract and prepaid) fell to EUR 24.32 in Q3, down from EUR 25.10 in the year-earlier quarter, said ComReg. A total of 38.8 percent of all mobile subscribers were actively using 4G networks by the end of the quarter, up from 33.8 percent in Q2 2016, and the average amount of 4G data (50.2 percent) exceeded 2G and 3G combined for the first time.
