24Mbps on unbundled BT Ireland Exchanges, no cap, all in for €42.50
Blurb from press release:
The up to 24Mb service, which will be available from telephone exchanges serving close to 330,000 homes and businesses, costs as little as €42.50 (incl VAT) per month for consumers or €40 (ex VAT) for businesses. These prices contrast starkly with eircom’s up to 12Mb broadband service for €169 (ex VAT) per month.
This is good news. The exchanges covered as of now are:
Tallaght, Dun Laoghaire, Dolphins Barn, Dublin North Main, Terenure, Merrion, Crown Alley, Beggars Bush, Swords, Clondalkin, Summerhill, Blanchardstown, Naas, Dooradoyle, Navan and Kilkenny City.
Enabled by September 2008 will be: Douglas, Ballincollig (Cork) and Whitehall, Belcamp, and Foxrock (Dublin) and Greystones (Wicklow).
Remember these are unbundled exchanges, if you are on resold packages from eircom you’ll have to switch fully to BT, if they have their equipment on your exchange.
This is a good move and it would be nice if BT released stats on line quality to show how many are getting what speeds.
