Has anyone been able to sort out broadband ? I'm at my wits end at this stage! I've seen KN networks calling to people's homes but nothing seems to be done, it's an absolute nightmare that in 2019 you can't get internet in an estate, when people less than 100 yards away c
an and the fibre cabinet is in this estate!!

Yeah he was at mine too, Apprantly only some houses can get it, like 5 out of the 30, but the estate isn't wired for copper broadband so the engineer will come out on Wednesday and tell you that, then back to square one with nobody to ask, ridiculous

Yeah he told me we could get it until I told him that they never put the old copper infrastructure in this estate, he said he had a KN technician in the car with him, so I pointed at a man hole and told him to open that up, and if I'm wrong knock at everyone else's house, they went looked and then drove off. Hopefully I'm wrong and you do get it and it works.

Cuz I did say to him that I thought there was a problem with getting broadband in and he said it's literally a case of flicking a switch on I don't understand all what he was going on about but be interested to see what happens Wednesday will let yas know

So Vodafone were due to call to us yesterday...no one showed up or called. When we eventually got through to someone (after numerous attempts) they told us it wouldn’t be available until 8th March yet if I ring as a new customer they are still tell me its available - no one can give is an answer!!!
Has anyone considered Three Broadband?? Not sure of the coverage as we both are with Vodafone.

You'll be going round and round in circles with Vodafone and eir, if they're telling you march, maybe that's the date when the fibre to the home will be available. I got the three broadband last weekend to keep me ticking over, 30 euro 30 day rolling contract, 150 euro for the router, 750GB

Hopefully it will be soon, I've emailed everyone complaining, even the national broadband plan. Yeah I'm getting about 18-20mb on it, it's decent, ok for the sky Q and Netflix and stuff, nothing serious
