eircom getting really desperate now

    If you have been disconnected for a year they will let you back free for 10 months now with NO LINE RENTAL and free connection as long as the line is there.

    They have also gotten rid of the 6 month MINIMUM DSL CONTRACT and now a bundle OR dsl only contract with them is for 12 months MINIMUM.

    eircom were running this particular promotion regionally until last week ( in the south) but gave up and made it national. I don't know if they will discount the €25.36 a month for 10 months off a bundle, better email them and get it in writing.

    eircom PSTN Trial Line Promotion

    Promotion Period : 20th January to 20th May 2010

    PSTN Monthly Rental (ex vat) Monthly Rental (inc vat)

    5 If a customer moves address during the promotional period, the discount is foregone for the remainder of the promotional period. However, if the customer is moving to an

    To right they are. Have you heard the advert about so many customers are coming back every week/month?

    I brought this up with an eircom employee and he mentioned that they didnt say how many they were loseing per month. It an awful lot more.

    They did shaft us for long enough.....
