>I'd be inclined to think Esat's business products off unbundled exchanges
are the best quality and best value product available in Ireland. I decided
against Netsource in the end for two reasons:
- Their handing of the throttling setup was pathetic. Not only did they
change the TOS without notice and not inform customers, they didn't make any
attmept to explain themselves afterwards. This is how Eircom and Esat run
- The domain name requirement is a scam. Their product is $listedPrice +
$domainScam + VAT / month, listing it as $listedPrice is just plain
fraudulent. UTV bundle CPS with their Internet products, but at least they
have the guts to admit it.
On the whole, Netsource reminds me of Esat and Eircom too much to do
business with them, which left only UTV. Who've served me extremely well for
the past few years.
