eir Group revenue for the year ended December 31 2022 was €1.244 billion and Adjusted EBITDA was €606 million. We are currently well underway investing €500 million to roll-out fibre to the home (“FTTH”) to 1.9 million premises across urban and suburban Ireland, while also investing €250 million updating and expanding our mobile network with a view to significantly increasing our high-speed mobile data capabilities, rolling out Ireland’s largest 5G network and expanding 4G coverage to 99% of the outdoor geography of Ireland. At 31 December 2022, we had passed approximately 2 million premises with fibre, including 987,000 with FTTH, passing approximately 89% of Irish premises and enabling ultrafast broadband speeds of up to 1 Gb/s for our customers.



Fixed services

We are the largest provider of fixed line telecommunications services in Ireland, offering broadband, voice, TV and data services to individual consumers and business users. We also offer wholesale access to our network to other authorised operators ("OAOs").

According to quarterly data published by ComReg (ComReg 23/21), we had a market share for the quarter ended 31 December 2022 of 41% of the Irish fixed line market, based on revenue. We have the most extensive fixed line telecommunications network in Ireland in terms of both capacity and geographic reach, and other network operators therefore rely heavily on our infrastructure. We are also the leading provider of broadband services in Ireland with 442,000 retail lines as of 31 December 2022.

As at 31 December 2022, we had over 888,000 fixed line retail and wholesale telephone access lines (excluding wholesale LLU) in service and 953,000 (excluding line share) retail and wholesale broadband customers. As at 31 December 2022, 89% of our broadband base is on fibre.
