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.
