    Yes. Its cheaper than prepay or bill pay broadband and the data allowance is much bigger.

    I rang 3 and they gave me the data settings for the modem.

    Not a bad idea as long as your reception is good .

    The proper modem is the key. Not the mifi one. Proper modem has an external antenna and you can add an outdoor aerial if you need to as well.

    I think he means anything that is not the one the broadband provider gives you. probably find a decent asus, tp link or netgear one on amazon for 40-70 quid.

    you jammy bast*rd. (although to be fair you've been in a black hole for long enoigh)

    I dont think you've many options on the fibre? is anyone other than vodafone and eir actually offering it.

    Actually sky are too

    We're on the rollout map for the second half of 2018 so I'm really hoping to see diggers coming soon.. on a vodafone 4g contract that's fine speed wise but a bit flaky and expensive given the 50gb download cap.

    Eir are nearly the last two years putting in fiber cable around here and there are very few connected yet. The fiber cable is on the road passing our house with about a year and the latest I heard was that it would be another six months before we would be connected.I would say you have plenty time to think about it.

    I have no faith in Eir since my bad experience with them and they don't seem to have gotten any better since. There's a few people unhappy with the yarns they are being spun by Eir regarding connection to the fibre network and the customer service department seems like it could do with a course in how to help the customers. https://www.boards.ie/ttforum/1293
