Connection to Eircom

It is a good idea to get in touch with eircom at the start of a project about a connection to phone, broadband or any other telecommunication service that you will require.

It does not matter which company you would like to choose and there are many of them on the market but they all share lines from eircom, so you need to make sure that the lines are positioned in the right place with them.

It will save you money and time if the pipes are placed on your site at the start of the project at the same time as your other services, like ESB and Water. The digger is there, so take the opportunity and place the pipes for eircom upto the connection pole.

Eircom usually requires that you place a two inch pipe on your site so that they can pass their cable through to the connecting point. This would stop the need to pass a overhead cable to your property.

Make sure that you pass a strong line through the pipe so that they eircom can pull their cable through.

It is also important to make sure that the end comes up at the entry point to the house.

For further details, contact eircom connections.
