    Default Eircom line rental could increase to €40 pm in rural + suburban areas. But FREE in Urban areas.

    Line rental in rural areas could rise to €40 under new proposal - Ireland’s communications news service – Siliconrepublic.com

    The idea is to allow eircom compete with upc in urban areas - ie where upc is mostly present.

    This would be a subsidy to urban dwellers as upc would be forced to reduce it's prices as well to compete.

    I don't think it will work out for eircom anyway as a lot of suburban (and some rural) users would move to usb stick broadband.

    This might work for Eircom because they know that rural dwellers are generally more brand loyal to them and secondly the alternatives aren't as strong for rural dwellers.

    Mostly this though. If UPC served my area I would jump at the chance to switch over.

    NBS from 3 - 40gb download - and run phone line using old eircom number from VPN operator- €22 a month totel for both

    uk sky freeviw card - € 30 every 5 years gives all uk channels etc.

    Lycamobile €10 a month gives 350 mins talk
    + unlimited data

    showed eircom and meteor the door two years ago - most peoole in rural areas now uisng above solutions as opposed to disintegrating copper wires and new spectrum since analog switch off will finish them off

    A welcome development. We should move more to varied prices. How much has it cost to put the mobile network in place and then we charge the same to people in cities and rural areas despite he additional costs of servicing the latter.
    Thank you for the six thousand likes.

    We kicked eircom into touch two years ago, aint never going back.
    A few weeks before my grandfather died, he started dipping his feet in a bucket of lard.
    He went downhill very fast after that.
