Would you just cop yourself on! It is the likes of you that has seen this site go to absolute hell over the past while with absolutely no push back from the admins.

They are putting an offer out there for those interested. They are a company running a business! (And no I don't work for them before you jump to the usual Boards bullsh1t answer).

Did not even see this until now - funny - I rang Digiweb was put through to sales within 1 minute hold time - gave them all details regarding EIR we are currently paying €78 a month! I tested the speed last night it was approx 25-40mb - GoMo which I swapped over to was 50mb so 4G was faster! parents didn’t want to lose phone line - I searched all last night for deals and Sky - Virgin Etc all came in same as EIR then came across DigiWeb and the cost for faster broadband then EIR and unlimited calls both landline and mobile for €44.95 like that’s seriously some saving! the bill from EIR always kept changing so one month €79 the next €81 etc and it might be because we called 0818 numbers some businesses use these etc so you have no choice in calling them. I had issues before with EIR speed went really slow and they didn’t fix it automatically or was it flagged - I had to call helpline - I rang waited no joke 50 minutes listening to ****e hold music only for them to disconnect the call when it was ringing to put me through to someone - I was fuming! Digiweb has the highest ratings via Trust Pilot which are independent. I was only on the phone for approx 6 minutes today and all signed up and modem being sent out - I asked do you install it - no he said just plug it in when EIR is disconnected and plug your landline into the modem instead of the landline socket and everything will be working. That’s fantastic if it works which I have no doubt it will. Every bill each month is €78-83 with EIR over 12 months is €936 - again we need the landline number - swapped over to Digiweb and total cost per month is €44.95 no increase in price after 6 months that’s the price. €539 approx per year for landline all calls and higher speeds etc parents are going to be very happy!

I have to agree, digiweb are very good, the only reason I left them was because of the 500GB fair usage cap on the up to 100MB broadband plans

Very good for what they can do. It's Eirs network they're reselling so they are relying on Eir for any network repairs or checks but they are helpful and always pick up the phone.

Signed up with 3 yesterday for 4g broadband. €30 on a 30 day contract. Seems to be very quick. Says unlimited but fair usage applies @ 750 gb per month. Seems fair enough

Life like the word “unlimited” has a different meaning to operators and I double ASAI will come back with the result you expect

They won’t give you 70mb if your house can get fiber. They refuse to sell you something for less money if it’s all you need

I didn't read that are you sure? I only signed up today as it's saving us allot of money, I think someone mentioned 1Tb per month if that's the case that's still loads as I don't do much etc but if you can point me in the right direction that would be great.

We pay over 78 a month sometimes 85 unlimited and calls to didn't even think of calling them letting them know we are leaving you, when I called before the 50 minutes hold time was ridiculous. The speed I got last night with EIR was 25-30mb and that was 2am so Digiweb 44.95 and not going up and can do everything the same was too good to pass up. Didn't know about them until searching last night and the highest Trustpilot reviews to.

I jumped ship with Eir today, I was on the €29.99 Black Friday deal that was due to increase up to €61.99 next month. It took 3 phone calls - two of which they just cut me off after waiting about half an hour! Finally when I spoke to someone the best they could offer was this €49.99 deal so I passed and cancelled the contract.

Trying to choose between Sky and Vodaphone for a broadband / phone connection, they're both €420 for the year which is and average of €35 per month.

I hope it works out well for you, but you can possibly expect pathetic speeds at peak usage times, like we had.... Best speed we could ever get (with our service/location) with 3 Mobile BB was up to about 35mbps, but it could drop as low as 2mbps at the high-usage times, evenings etc. when you really want to be using it.....

I'm just in the process of ordering FTTH which has now become available to us and thanks to this thread I have another option to consider (Digiweb - didn't realise they were offering FTTH in our area). Eir aren't under consideration due to all the horror stories about their shambles of a customer service.
