How improved broadband services will help
The broadband scheme will lay new fibre optic telephone lines to cabinets, and in some cases to premises in many areas across Northern Ireland. This will improve telecommunications infrastructure provided through your telephone line.
Depending on where you live in Northern Ireland, the broadband scheme should allow you to:
- access superfast broadband
- choose a supplier from several competing broadband companies in areas which have superfast broadband
- access other services such as video on demand or subscription television
Superfast broadband speed is more than 24 megabits per second.
Timetable for improvements
The improvement scheme is being rolled out in three phases. The end date of the phases are December 2016, June 2017 and June 2018. Improvement work will complete in June 2018.
