There are a few broadband and phone deals available that work out cheaper than some  of the standalone  “broadband-only” deals. If you can get free phone calls to landlines plus broadband for a lower price than just broadband on it’s own , you may as well go for it. It will also result in friends and family with landlines being able to phone you for less on your landline.

Some Examples:

Pure Telecom 100Mb Unlimited and free anytime calls to landlines (€444 in year one)

Vodafone 100Mb Unlimited and free anytime calls to landlines. (€540 in year one)

  1. It seems to be a big deal for the ISPs (except Virgin/UPC/NTL) to invest in their own infrastructure here in Ireland. With broadband speeds of “up to 24Mbits” they are about 10 years behind the continent… Are Irish people stuck paying landline fees to Eircom forever? Apologies, but it’s simply stupid to call a 24Mb broadband a fibre broadband.

    • Hi Kam what Magnet and Digiweb offer on their 24Mb plans are not Fibre but LLU products which is a type of DSL product. But I agree with your statement it seems we will eternally be paying Eir landline fees, but hopefully with Virgin and the emergence of Siro broadband that will all change in the future and give Eir a run for their money.

  2. I attempted to switch broadband providers which required me to get an Eir telephone line connection. On two different occasions I tried to get a landline installed and on both occasions it was a complete shambles; I don’t think Eir actually wants to sell their main product. Poor processes, lack of common sense amongst sales staff (who all read from the same script no matter what the specific problem is), mis-information and no proper communication within the company nor with their third party installers. On the second attempt, I made it further along the process but it cost my husband a half-day in annual leave. We were told the installation would happen in the morning but the installer had not been informed of the communicated timeslot and scheduled the work for post 2pm. When I asked how I could lodge a complaint, I was told I’d have to write a letter. I gave up – I never want to have to contact Eir again.
