This sounds like what good'ole telstra tried to do to us.. (Australia) the
3GB cap.. the AUP(rules of use) have chaned like 4 times this year regarding
usage. But as of now I pay AU$88 - which to me is expensive but If I was
earning sterling would only be 30 Quid.
I'll be comming over to Ireland in feb, so they better have reasonable ADSL
by then, cos going back to dial up will hurt.
But if Eircom is anything like telstra you guys will be waiting another 6
months at least.
