These broadband maps are collated from a large variety of publicly available sources without comment, some manually checked in the past against public data infrastructure sites since shut down such as infrastructure.ie and the DCENR data collated on broadband.gov.ie as and when possible and also from a number of individual data visualisation/mapping/GIS analytic exercises conducted over time. All such exercises are accepted (if included) on an undisputed and broadly equally weighted 'best effort' basis and as a consequence no warranty as to their overall accuracy is given nor may any such warranty be inferred in any way whatsoever.
Irelandoffline will accept amendments and corrections on the grounds of specific inaccuracy only and where more up to date location information or WGS-84 compliant geocodes are supplied together with reasonably good release notes on the changes being supplied. We undertake to review all such supplied information and to amend the mapping dataset in good time according to the relative weightings we in Irelandoffline choose to attach to the importance of replacing the older data with updated data. We do not give any guarantees as to the time it will take to effect a modification of the dataset even where we consider such a modification ultimately desirable.
You may, if you wish, contact us at the link above, contacting us on any matter pertaining to the collated dataset and derived maps confirms your full acceptance of the above disclaimer.
Broadband is defined by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) as a minimum of 4mbps down and 1mbps up.
Satellite is not really broadband, never will be, no matter what the shiny marketing seems to say. Marketing it as broadband doesn't mean it is broadband. Utterly terrible download limits (sliding windows) and enormous ping times (800ms) making satellite difficult for interactive use (like Skype) or watching videos from the likes of youtube. There should never be a need for Satellite in any "advanced economy" as it is a solution for the Sahara desert or in the mid-Atlantic, the very idea of using satellite anywhere on land is simply indicative of lazy policy making and taking the easy way out.
Mobile reception can vary wildly from no connection to sometimes reasonable speeds. There are many technical variables involved
Fixed Wireless Access can give excellent signal reception but Line of Sight issues can interfere with reception like trees or hills
xDSL is line/distance dependant, the further you are from an exchange the slower the speed delivered.
Overall cable delivers the best and most reliable speeds until Fibre To The home becomes widely available. However the current VDSL rollout is NOT Fibre to the Home and is, in reality, just a stop-gap measure. Fibre to the home is the only viable technology to deliver the requirements of the not so far distant future.

You can either click on a place or drag the red marker to a position You can also click on any object and information about that object will be displayed.
To measure distance from a mast or exchange
To measure your distance from an exchange or a mobile mast, click on the object and you will get a dialog that includes a "Calculate distance" link, the map will then present you with a marker which you can drag to the position you wish to measure from, the distance will then be displayed in the marker label
