Ducting documents for Telecom’s service

New underground ducting

eir’s standard delivery method for rural fibre to the home services is to use an overhead line from the nearest pole to the home.

Where a customer is seeking to receive service via underground ducting instead, and no existing infrastructure is present at the premises, specific guidelines for the customer/contractor can be found in our New Ducting Specification guide which can be downloaded here. It is necessary for new ducting to comply with the specifications outlined in order to enable delivery of new fibre to the home service.

Blocked ducting

Typically a blockage will be identified by a technician when they visit to survey or install the service.  A blockage encountered in an existing duct will require a civil engineering contractor or builder who can remove or remedy the blockage. This will need to be arranged by the homeowner themselves. Unfortunately, eir cannot complete this work. Once the duct has been unblocked, please call 1800303733, quoting your original order reference to set up another install appointment.
