Magnet debuts 24MB broadband – For €240 a month

SiliconRepublic reports on Magnet are releasing a 24mbps broadband product. This is the power of LLU. €240 a month isn’t something the general consumer but I know people that are paying a fortune for 4mbps adsl so this in comparison is far better value for money. Terrible shame it’s capped though.

EDIT: Just got their press release:

Full product list:

24MB service – €240.00 incl VAT (250GB download cap)

10MB service – €149.00 incl VAT (150GB download cap)

4MB service – €63.99 incl VAT (100GB download cap)

2MB service – €39.99 incl VAT (25GB download cap)

The 4mbps business product from eircom is €169 [b]ex vat[/b], so Magnet are at least 1/3 of the eircom price for eircom’s top business package. Some people may have issues with caps on such an expensive service though.

    Slightly OT, but I think you might be the guy to ask.

    Has anyone in public life even suggested Muni Wifi in Dublin? Has anyone done a study on the cost, benefits, issues or otherwise? If not, why not?

    Thanks Justin

    Yeah but its still eircom’s copper they are using. And we all know the state some of it is in. ADSL2+ or no ADSL2+ very few people will hit the full 24Mb

    Justin, I think I heard of someone that wanted to do this in Dublin. Some party hack for a local council maybe. I know someone approached us recently too about endorsing some college business idea that would give free WiFi to people.
