This was in the Irish Times today:
BT has just upgraded its equipment in six Eircom exchanges to ADSL2+ which will provide speeds of up to 8MBit/sec, which Mr Maloney says is more than adequate to provide new TV-over-broadband services.
The service is available to new BT customers connecting to the Tallaght, DÃºn Laoghaire, Dolphins Barn, Terenure, Merrion and North Main (Upper O’Connell St) exchanges in Dublin.
Costing €42.50 per month, existing customers will be able to move to it from September.
September is when eircom allow hassle-free movement to LLU which will allow you to keep your number. Makes sense. Nice to see BT start doing something with LLU again. Should mean more competition for Magnet and Smart.
