I'm looking to get broadband installed into where I'm living. I got recommendations to check out Eircom and UPC. Eircom seem to be very pricey - Then they want €122 to install a phone line which will take 10 working days, €30 to connect to broadband and then €49 or €57 per month for the actual broadband. They also don't do the line installation outside office hours and don't give any reasonable advance notice of their arrival. Worst of all though, you have a minimum 12 month contract. While you can bring it with you if you move, the contract gets reset so you could move on month 11 and it will get reset to 0 again.
UPC seem to be much more reasonable - they charge a once-off connection fee and then the monthly fee for the broadband itself. They also have a minimum contract but it doesn't get reset and they will cancel the contract if you move somewhere that UPC don't support.
So, I'm just wondering if there are other UPC customers out there and what your experience has been. At the moment it's a no-brainer as to which provider I will go with.
