  11. 11. The Best Option<br />As suggested by bonkers.ie I feel that an Eircom plan would be my best option as it is regarded as reliable and provides a quick speed @ 8Mb. <br />Choosing the “Next Generation Broadband Regular & talktime chatter”, I would be paying €51.98 a month for a home phone line and internet which is a reasonable price for a (crucial) reliable internet provider.<br />Beth Marshall N00070492<br />
  12. 12. The Best Option<br />However if the 8mb speed was too high for my phoneline I would choose the 3mb Vodafone plan @ €45.00. I would be able to convinently correlate my mobile, home and internet services and make just one payment a month. <br />Beth Marshall N00070492<br />
