Yeah reading through it not great.
The way they were pumping it up, expected it to be much better.

When I saw the build up yesterday, was hoping for a simple broadband only package at a decent price. I'm on the basic broadband only, which is about to go up to €60 per month, which is steep enough

Would be interested in it if they offered more 12mbs on my line. Terrible offering at a 5er less than the virgin offer with a massively inferiorer broadband product

Thats such a crap offer. Does anyone care about apple TV? Just seems dear.
I thought they were going away from this cheap initial price and fleece you for the remaining 6 months of the contract stuff........

I used to be on that. I'd switch to Vodafone. Works well for me.

So max speed broadband options are now:

Sky - 1GB
Eir - 1GB
Vodafone - 1GB
Virgin - 500MB

Some of these aren't widely available yet so you may not have all 4 to choose from in your area

The product savvy amongst us give little sh!t about the Apple. The sheeple out there love an Apple TV paperweight to go with their iPhones and iPad

Thanks OP, I bought 5 anyway

Realistically for most it will be


Sky - 100MB
Eir - 100MB
Voda - 100MB
Virgin - 500MB or not available

Is it not more about Eir providing their service through the Apple TV rather than another set top box?

Plus you get the added bonus of built in app, casting, AirPlay, Apple TV if you subscribe.

I don’t think it warrants the childishness that’s associated with iOS V Android and all the fanboy ****e that comes with that.
