My contract just expired yesterday and was about to ring Eircom this week to get a better deal.
I am paying 95 euro a month for 50mb internet and digital tv in 2 rooms. No sky sports or anything like that. Feel it's a rip off. Got an Eircom guy call to the house a few months ago to say I could get the same from them for 66 euro. Of course... still in contract at the time so what could you do.
But really interesting reading this thread. Gonna give UPC a call tomorrow and see if they can offer me a better deal.

Just rang UPC after seeing this forum.
I have home phone any time and broadband unlimited for €49
Im out of contract next month and said I was concidering leaving because of the offers i can get from other companies.
I was offered the next 4 months half and then back to full price, but i have to agree a new 12 month contact.
Seems ok to me €100 in my pocket
What ya think ?

Hi all -
I rang up there saying I was trying to get a cheaper option and was thinking of going to Eircom. I'm currently paying 73 a month, have been a customer for over 6 years and never got a special intro half price. Never missed a payment etc.
I also told them I'd no interest in the phone part of the bundle and would take the basic TV pack with reduced speed broadband once it was unlimited. Was basically told I'm in contract until 28th Jan and made no effort to try keep my business. Looking forward to leaving them now.

How does a UPC contract work?
I got them in 2 years ago this coming Dec.
Is it one year, then rolls / renews each year?

Is there generally a set % discount they start off with when you get through to the customer loyalty department or does it depend on what package you are on? I am on the 200mb Horizon Max and pay over €80 per month. Was offered an €18 reduction per month. Think I will go ahead and cancel and see if they ring back with a better offer.

If you send the cancellation email, is that it, no going back?

No. You have to give 30 day notice. If they don't call you. Ring them on day 28 and just say you will accept the offer you have been given.
It's perfectly fine to that.
That have even rang me to take there box back 1 week into my 30 days. I told them to come back when my 30 days was up.

I got offered a package half price for 6 months on a 12 month contract. Apparently the loyalty department now only offer half price deals for 6months? Does anyone know if this is the case? Has anyone gotten a half price offer for 12 months recently?

I got the same 6 month deal, but they said new packages are coming out in feb and you can change again as the contract will end then and not in 12 months, although I didn't really understand why
They said there will be a €5 increase in the package from Feb.
