Give me this fellas name, I am paying €39.99 and €24 a month for this package and will be out of contract next week and want the same discount !CGorman said:we were contacted by an Eircom repersentative who said that since we were a FREECO customer (i.e. we had an ISDN line) we were entitled to a special deal... we were given broadband for €24.99 a month + €19.99 line rental... we've had this fantastic price for months now.
I've no idea of the salespersons name, it was so long ago now, but nobody can understand how we are paying so little! It was supposed to be €29.99 a month + line rental (very good in itself) , but we are only ever billed €24.99 + line rentaltonka said:Give me this fellas name, I am paying €39.99 and €24 a month for this package and will be out of contract next week and want the same discount !
Can you type in the exact product description(S) that appears on your bill for the BB and for the Line Rental because if I know what the product is called on their billing system I can ring them up and hassle them about it.CGorman said:I've no idea of the salespersons name, it was so long ago now, but nobody can understand how we are paying so little!

You can do self install on the BT Ireland broadband if you order from the web site www.btireland.com. I have gone for the more expensive Broadband Plus - €50 a month including line rental. It gives you 2MB download and a bigger download limit, with a contention ratio of 24:1. The basic product is half this speed and twice the contention.ninsaga said:...there could be an exciting time ahead here now on the BB scene with...
ESAT BB & Line rental for €40/mth (€50 connection fee. bummer!)
Smart BB & Line rental for €35/mth (not in my area though damn it!)
NTL.....don't know & couldn't care aas I live outside the pale
...about bloody time the prices started to come down
DrM.. I seem to recall in the past that your were a Euphony advocate... how do the ESAT call charges compare to what you have on the Euphony Talknow €10/mth cost...
I ordered mine 2 weeks ago online and understood that there was no charge for the self-install if ordering online. I don't have the service or the ADSL modem yet.Seagull said:BT does have a charge for a self-install, but they waive it if you order online. That's unless they've changed their T&Cs recently. My order went in about 3 months back and the self-installation fee was waived.
You have to sign up for their phone package at €25 per month as well (I too have UTV and haven't had too many problems with it), so the total cost is €55.blogmad said:I can highly recommend UTV. I have used their service for almost a year now and havent had a single problem. Monthly outgoing 29Eur. I also get free calls in the evening and all weekend (streets ahead of Eircom on that score).
here is a site that I discovered recently that gives info on all providers.
