Rip-off broadband

Jeez are we being screwed for pricing of broadband in this country, or what?

I’m currently looking around at the best offerings for dsl broadband and the offers are around 40 euro for 2mb broadband – while in the UK, BE are offering 24mb broadband for £24 per month! £24 is roughly equal to 36 euro.

So, in our nearest neighbouring country, consumers can get broadband at 12 times the speed we get here for less than we are charged here? How is that possible?

Plus they get an upload speed of 1.3mb – roughly 10 times what most Irish providers are offering.

Well, at least the Irish ISPs will respect me in the morning!
