You're right - there is no external modem required. I actually tried to
get this over the aerial as I live in rented accommodation, but it
wasn't available in my area at the time.
Before I signed up with Irish Broadband I went looking for peoples
opinions and found lots on boards.ie (but a disclaimer - people love to
complain and hate to praise - take it all with a grain of salt).
As for the aerial - it's not too much hastle. They have a mounting kit
for chimneys that requires no drilling, run the cable down the
extoerior walls and drill on small hole to bring it into the house.
Since I got it last March/April I have had no service outages and no
problems of any other kind.
