Irish BB, Digiweb wireless,Clearwire,Esat, Smart availabilty

Just called all these companies to check for availabilty.
Clearwire and Digiweb wireless are not available.
Irish Broadband's Ripwave product (approx €20 per month) is not available but their Breeze product (approx €35 per month) is available - although they have to install an antenna on your house which I think is free.
However at that price you could get a landline aswell from the like of Esat. Esat is available but Smart Telecom is not. Unfortunately of course you still need to pay the phone line installation fee for this
Anyone tried any other companies?

Magnet have installed Fibre optic lines throughout the estate you could get one of thier packages.
I wouldn't go for IBB anybody I know who got it has had nothing but complaints about it.
I will be getting the Magnet entertainment package when we move in,
This will do the Phone, TV and give you a 8 Meg Contention free line which compared to my current BT for phone and Broadband, NTL for TV; will work out allot cheaper.
Look on boards.ie for other opinions on all the service providers:

At the time Magnet was not an option for the reasons detailed in this thread: http://balgriffin.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=9
I agree Irish BB's service was certainly very poor in the past! (I only say "in the past" because it's been over a year since I last used them and thankfully am not with them anymore).

Although people have advised against Magnet as a second TV option its great and for the price they are offering us its great. The are offering 2 months free and then the next 10 months at 30 euro that covers BB, TV and the phone line....So I couldn't do better....

i only got the ntl installed there last week and have the digital ntl package plus broadband, hence i'm emailing at 2.30 in the morning. ntl have a offer at the moment €9.99 per month for the first six months plus an extra 5 euro for internet and then €50 ish after that, works out quite well when you work out the yearly rate

Got it too - though NTL has not improved - image freezing and gathering data delays!!!! The broadband is good though apart the ability to check work email at home! Although I did not realise I was paying more €5? I think we are paying 9.99 only!
