That's only if it's availible in your area. I hear all this advertisment's on the radio, and it pisses me off that we can't get it. Up until 6 months ago we had 14 kps, slower than snail mail. We asked for another line for a fax, knowing there asw none availible, and eircom was legally obliged to supply a box on the wall, ran the internet connection on that at 48 kps.

Unfortunatley we dont have coverage in Cork yet, someone snapped up our frequency licence down there and we're in the process of trying to buy it back. Sorry!!!

But it would be €35 per month for the 1mg, €40 per month for the 2mb. no connection fee either.

Yup, Eircom wholesale did a major speed upgrade on the DSL backbone over the weekend. So whether, you're Nethop, IOL, Esat, Netsource or Eircom.net then you've automatically been upgraded.

Even upload speeds have been increased. The maximum DSL speeds are now 5MB download / 512k upload
