Unless you've seen lots of guys digging up roads and laying cable - TE
(unfortunately) is your best bet. Even if the other companies offer a 128k,
it'll be over TE copper (or something). So you might as well deal with them
direct. On the other hand (depending on where you are) ESAT and others may
have provided cable, in which case you may well be better off connecting to
As an off-beam suggestion, again depending on where you are and what you want
to do - there is an option to link into somebody elses network, like Minerva
Managed Networks. I don't know what you're doing, (eg: internet, corporate
stuff whatever) and I don't know what their criteria for supply is, but it may
be worth a phone call/email.
Minerva are at: 1850 646378 or info at domain minerva.ie or www.minerva.ie
Alternatively, if you want to try a TE alternative anyway, I'd go for
MCIWorldCom first : 1800 400 800; info at domain wcom.ie and guess what www.wcom.ie.
I've you need internet or international call services they're probably the
best, as TE use their network internationally, so the interconnect is probably
at a better rate locally.
Hope that helps.
