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
Doesn’t sky have 200€ once off fee?

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.

I only have bb /phone and had same issue . I told them when I called first time if they wouldn’t give me 9mths I would cancel which I did . A week later I got a call offering me 6 which I declined she said hang on and within 1 min she came back with 9mths . Stand your ground even until day of cancellation you’ll get 9mths
I pay €29 for 9mths then €58 for last 3

Your offer,

€62.50 x 3 =€ 187.50

Total €610.50

How many calls did that take?
In April I could only manage €15 off for 6 months. Broadband only. Rang 3 to times. Got the usual spiel. You got the half price offer before bla bla.

It depends which version of Vodafone broadband you end up with. It can either be phone line, or the new Siro installation.

Anything that comes in via a phone line will provide worse service than Virgin for certain.

I'm on Virgin's 30 day contract, no news here of any price increase yet...

If Siro is not available in your area, you are basically stuck with virgin media with regards to speed and reliability, would I be correct in saying this?
