Internet Belfry Hall Block D

#1
Hello Neighbours!

Recently I have purchased the apartament in block D of Belfry Hall. What is the current situation of the broadband. Is Eircom or Vodafone the only providers and is 5 Mbps the fastest you can get. Is there any faster option. What do you have in your apartaments?

Thanks,

Adam

Hey Adam.
I've had Eircom broadband for last 4 years. 5mb is the speed I have but they
have told me that fibre powered broadband is coming soon but they can't give
me a specific time. Thinking of moving to sky broadband when contract is over.
Had problems with Eircom when I could only get 1mb download speed. They told
me there was interference coming from somewhere and nothing they could do about it.
I asked for a reduction in my bill but was told because I was getting over 1mb
that I would be in breach of my contract and I would have to pay for it.
Didn't find most of their staff helpful. I have sky tv so would get broadband
and phone cheaper with sky.

Hey Spider,

im doing ok with eircom. Consistently getting 4MB. Sky use the same lines as eircom so your just gona get the same speed with them. Im hanging on with eircom as they have said they will have fibre power in Citywest very soon. Although I wont hold my breath regarding the "very soon" part!
