Key Data

Mobile subscribers continue to decline in Q115, by 2% y-o-y, to reach 5.15mn. This is due to the removal of inactive prepaid subscribers and the decrease of dedicated mobile broadband subscriptions.

The fixed market continues to grow with 1.27mn fixed broadband connections and 1.56mn fixed telephone line connections at the end of Q115. The market has been driven by convergent offers, bundling multiple services together, and the increased availability of higher broadband speeds, either through cable, VDSL or FTTx.

The Irish mobile market is seeing a consistent decline in prepaid connections and a constant increase in postpaid subscribers as operators lure customers with attractive data plans and the promise of subsidised smartphones.
