About Us

Enet's network is made up of a combination of fibre and wireless assets that, when aggregated, create a unique, fully integrated national network proposition - allowing for unrivalled service quality and availability.

Enet is Ireland’s largest, open access network provider. We are building and operating the largest alternative wholesale telecoms network in Ireland, which is facilitating the delivery of affordable, world-class broadband and wireless services to homes and businesses on a genuinely nationwide across Ireland basis.

Enet’s parent is Speed Fibre Group, an Irish investment vehicle focused on telecoms infrastructure. Speed Fibre Group itself is owned by the Irish Infrastructure Fund (IIF) who manages capital for 20 institutional investors, 18 of which are Irish pension funds, trusts, and investment managers.

To date, the IIF controls over €500m of investments across energy, telecoms, tourism and healthcare in Ireland.

Enet currently workswith over 70 different retailservice providers to bring high-quality fibre and wireless connectivity to over one million end users throughout the country. Our ambition is to make it even easier and more cost-effective for carriers to deliver broadband and high-performance connectivity solutions to more customers.

Enet does not compete with our customers. We operate exclusively on an open access, wholesale-only basis, all authorised telecom carriers can have access to our infrastructure on the same basis, enabling them to deliver more cost-effective, high-performance connectivity solutions to more customers in regional and rural Ireland. This model is contrary to traditional operators’ exclusivity of network and allows for competition in a way that has not previously happened.
