TelefA?nica Ireland is a broadband and telecommunications provider in Ireland. The company is marketed and trades as O2 (typeset as O2). Esat Digifone was its previous name when it was owned by Esat Telecommunications (and Telenor) from 1997 to 2006. In 2006, the company was acquired by TelefA?nica, which is a subsidiary of TelefA?nica Europe.
In 1997, Esat Digifone was launched as a joint venture between Esat Telecommunications and Telenor.
In 1999, Esat Telecom and Telenor began to dispute how Esat Digifone should be operated.

However Esat Digifone was not part of the operations integrated with BT's existing Irish operations. Instead, it became part of the BT Wireless division within BT, and was briefly rebranded simply Digifone. This branding lasted for less than six months.
In 2001, the BT Wireless division became mmO2 plc, a separate company, through a de-merger from BT. British Telecommunications shareholders received
