€49.99
a month forever!

Totally Unlimited Broadband
Our fastest WiFi with our new fibre box
Unlimited Off-Peak local & national calls
FREE eir sport pack with Virgin Media Sport
Speeds up to 100Mb

Would never go back to them regardless of price. I
had three months of phone calls and talking to comreg before they refunded me for money that they took for broadband that they never even provided to me.

Take a look at the old talk to eir forums before signing up! eir is a disaster to get out of.

Also I’d imagine it would be cheaper to switch to sky virgin and Vodafone every 12 months as they frequently have deals for new customers

Vodafone is 25 a month and 40 after the initial 6 months, how is this a bargain?

I agree its a weak effort from Eir but I suppose its the fixed price for life they are trying to sell

Until they call you and say they are breaking your contract...

Absolute filth of a company.

By what definition is life though? Life of the contract till they increase the offer or cease to offer it at all.

Eir for life sounds like an even worse deal.

I pay Pure Telecom 30 quid a month and can get through to them on the phone if needed.

Same as any network or provider really. Most people look at what they want to see - "X amount for Y length". But nearly all deals or contracts have clauses to change them.

If you don't need the sport, Digiweb's equivalent is €40/month and this is not a promotional price:
https://digiweb.ie/product/fibre-home-broadband/

Anytime calls (instead of off-peak) is an additional €5/month:
https://digiweb.ie/product/fibre-broadband-unlimited/

One niggle is they still have fair usage limits in heir T&C's, however, I haven't heard of anyone in the past few years having their account suspended for excess usage.

When I had Digiweb a few years ago (DSL service), their customer service and technical support were quick to get through to and they generally were helpful, totally different to my previous experience with Eir.
