Wouldn’t go near Vodafone, pure shite.


#543

Think they are just one of numerous providers


#544

But apparently sky are offering only 125mb per second. Ok that’s more than enough to handle one of AL’s specials but versus 1000?


#545

In what way? Hardware? Customer Care? User experience? Did you have the fiber or mobile broadband? Cheers


#546

Have been waiting a long time for line rental to bite the dust . This could hit the likes of eircom hard for people who don’t use or require a land line anymore . Anything over 100 mbs would be a god send for me , have about 90mbs on an Ethernet/ TP Powerlink .
This is a game changer for folks in the sticks.


#547

1000 megs, if I got 150 I’d be happy. I’m going to ring sky tomorrow see what they offer but if I can get the commander in chief to switch over vidafones tv package I’ll move.


#548

Unless they give it to you for nothing , I’d be switching . Do you not have to be out of contract to haggle with these swines ?


#549

I’m out of contract since yesterday!


#550

Score :grinning:
On a side note , mate of mine recently discovered that UPC / Virgin had installed a supply box on his house which provides for his estate , without informing him.
He only found out by accident and kicked up a storm .Within 15 minutes they offered him broadband free for life !!


#551

That’s a score! Great stuff!


#552

Yeah, think it should fit your requirements. As your in Navan I would recommend dropping into wescos electrical wholesalers very good customer service and plenty of free advice. Attached is pic of a neat piece of kit might not suit your design but good quality and very good value available in Homebase navan & worth a look ( €20 approx ).


#553

Pretty much all of the above, I had the mobile broadband, so to be fair can’t comment on the fibre broadband. But our broadband consistently stopped working for no apparent reason and their customer care was useless.


#554

Middle-age.


#555

Yeah you said it TL! when corduroy starts appealing to ya it’s tine to have that middle age crisis and that sleeve tattoo! :grin:


#556

Yeah heard nightmare stuff on the mobile. But this is fibre straight to the house using the esb infrastructure… thanks anyway for getting back.


#557

@JJF I switched recently from Eir to Sky. TV excellent, Broadband utter rubbish. On to them again last night and Engineer due out this week :thinking:

Over the Xmas I was getting download speed of 500Kbs and upload of 257Kbs ( Half Meg & Quarter Meg). Was told to run a CAT5 cable from router into TV, when I asked why they sell Wireless Broadband???

TBC…


#558

Sky and vodafone tend to piggy back on Eir infrastructure - so if you were with Eir and its shite - it wont change.

Virgin media the only way to go when available.


#559

Last couple of days I’ve been trying to improve my wireless broadband . There’s lots of factors to take into consideration . Is it all over the house it’s poor ? How far away is the tv from the router?
Also if you download the Wi-Fi Analyser app , it will tell which is the strongest channel on your router . You can then go into your router settings and switch it to that channel .Already seeing an improvement!
