That depends where you're going from and to. It also depends on what you
want for that.
Esat often won't touch lines under 2MB unless they are already present in
the building. Eircom will, but normally charge a larger rental.
It might well work out cheaper to get the leased line from the Telco into
another ISPs Network, and pay the ISP for the transit charge, rather than
simply buying the lot from the Telco. YMMV, and of course it depends
where the other ISP actually is (it won't work from Blackrock to Cork, but
could, purely hypothetically, lead to significant savings if you were
saying going from Blackrock to Barrow St).
I should add that no two cases are the same - when I've been getting quotes
for our leased line customers, we have to confirm the Telco charge before
quoting to the customer.
