  18. 18. Opinions and Complaints<br />Eircom Broadband, Customer Service<br />“In just over one month my one year contract with Eircom Broadband will be<br />up and I would like to cancel at that point. I have looked everywhere for a<br />clear procedure to go about doing this but there is none!! I have emailed<br />eircomnetcontracts@eircom.netgiving my one months's notice - no response, I<br />have emailed who just said to ring 1800 503<br />303. I rang 1800 503 303 and they said I am ringing too early and just wait<br />until 10 days before the cutoff date and ring back then.”<br />DouglasMan,<br />
  19. 19. BT Broadband<br />“I’ve been with BT for 18 months… about a month ago they increased my<br />speed and lifted the cap. I’d never gone over the cap anyway so it wasn’t any<br />real bonus. The speed increase was though. <br />Three days ago BT Ireland decided to restrict my broadband speed to 10k per<br />second citing their ‘Fair Usage’ policy. There was no warning, no call, no<br />email.. <br />They use outsourced Indian support which having used this before I have to<br />say…it really stinks to high heaven…If you are thinking of broadband and are a<br />novice then remember this… as you’ll find yourself saying ’sorry can you repeat<br />that ” incessantly during a support call….the support person is ONLY interested<br />in getting you off the phone and chalking up another resolved issue (wheter<br />its resolved or not)…”<br />Mickelodian,<br />
  20. 20. Irish Broadband<br />“I contacted them by email to set me up an email account with them so I could<br />use Outlook. From start to finish this took 20 days.”<br />Niall T, <br />“Irish Broadband is simply useless.
