Default Eir Fibre



What speeds are you enjoying at present?

I'm told the average in most homes is around 30 to 40mB.

My line band has been reduced to 20mB due to a line problem in my area under investigation and this has been done to allow some form of access to the internet.

I am currently getting about 15 to 18mB.

Anyone else!

I doubt if you have fibre broadband.

You probably have fibre to a cabinet somewhere in your area: from there it is copper to your house.

I was getting a cool 80mb until both my router and line decided to die on the same day. Only three weeks old.....

Confirmed by the call out electrician/engineer guy.
I was already aware of this.
Once your nearest exchange is upgraded to efibre you are considered to be in a efibre zone according to the Eir experts.
Which again allows them to advertise speeds "up to 100mB", which nobody will ever hope to get!

Anyone using Vodafone! I know they piggy back on the Eir system, but they are a little cheaper. You just get a Vodafone modem to replace the Eir one and what you get from Eir is what you will continue to receive.

Is worth the change cost wise, any advice or experience will help.

Thanks
