Your price increase is on the package so you can cancel that one and than choose what ever you want.

Wait a while, Eir TV with Apple 4K TV box is on the way, maybe that is better for you.

If you are with virgin than you can simply pay off the amount you still owe for the device. Device and Mobile Services Contract are separate.

So you can pay off the rest of the device charges and use a different mobile services provider.

That is unlike with other carriers where you have to stick with them xx month (or spend xx € on services) to owe the phone.

Check out the terms you have signed up for you, you might be able to leave virgin and just continue to pay them for the phone.

Crazy pricing. 50 pm for 6 months then 80pm after for the lowest offering (100mb bb).
Eir won’t win many customers with that price

I never got an email or letter about this and I'm with them, is it just for some customers?

I can get Siro now and 1GB with Vodafone is 6 months at €25 and €50 for next 6 months, that's €37.50 a month for 12 months.
As soon as I get the VM mail, I will be leaving this time.

Checked my mail and see there is a mail from VM.
Only mentions the change in the 1850 etc numbers and nothing about any price increase?

VM just offered me 6 months half price on BB, so 2 months half price @€59 rate and 4 months on new price of €62.50 then the remaining 6 months at full price of €62.50. In the past few years I’ve had 2 9 months half price and 2 6 months half price offers, he 100% guaranteed me that I won’t get another 9 months deal, especially as I’ve only got phone and BB.

My predicament now is Siro is currently being installed in my area but I’m not sure how long it will be before it’s live, also, we are heavy users with a few months over the 1000gb usage. Apparently eir and Vodafone impose restrictions and possible changes when you exceed their limits.

For the minute I’ve asked him to leave a note on my account with the 6 month offer while I consider my options.

VM offered upgraded speed from 360mb to 500mb with 54*9 and 3 *69.



I said no, asked to be disconnected in 30 days and the cancellation is processing.



Hopefully take up the 1GB with Sky which is saving of 270 a year

No, the deal they offered me is better,

€29.50 x 2 = €59
€31.25 x 4 = €125
€62.50 x 6 = €375

Total €559

Your offer,

€47 x 9 = €423
€62.50 x 3 =€ 187.50

Total €610.50
