Eircom has grown its eVision TV service by an additional 7,000 households amid strong uptake of its fibre product.

eVision has now been taken by 28,000 households, passing the 24,000 target the Irish telco had set itself for June.

The service launched a year ago, positioning itself as the Republic’s first quad-play proposition.

Eircom now has 731,000 broadband connections including 172,000 on fibre.
