They also sell unbundled ADSL these days.
'How difficult is it to connect?
Magnet Business provides broadband service over a standard telephone
line. The customer nominates a telephone line for Magnet to unbundled.
The unbundling process takes on average three weeks. If a telephone line
is not available Magnet will request a new telephone line for the
delivery of service.'

blogged at http://colin.netech.ie/tag/magnet too.
