The National Broadband Scheme (NBS).

The National Broadband Scheme (NBS).

The NBS is a government sponsored initiative to bring broadband to areas in Ireland where it was previously unavailable.
The government awarded the contract to Three in 2008 and we have been busy extending our network ever since. The project is now complete and our customers can experience Ireland’s largest high-speed mobile network.

The NBS ended at midnight on the 25th August 2014.
