Is Ireland finally going to get (expensive) broadband?

Piaras dropped me a note today to let me know that Magnet Networks are rolling out fast broadband in Ireland – I have written previously about the shocking state of broadband in Ireland.

Now Magnet are going to offer:

24MB service – €240.00 incl VAT (250 GB download cap)
10 MB – €149.00 incl VAT (150GB download cap)
4MB – €63.99 incl VAT (100GB download cap)
2MB – €39.99 incl VAT (25GB download cap)

All the offers incl the usual line rental free

Now, all this seems a tad pricey – especially since BE are offering 24mb broadband in the UK for £24 per month – however, previous to this offer, the best broadband offer in Ireland was Digiweb’s 6MB offer at €301.29 incl VAT afaik.

Ok, now we are about to have the speed – who’s going to start a price war and get the prices down to something realistic?

I see Damien has written this up too.
