Unfortunately, that service is unfeasibly expensive. :( drat, I shipped
my el-cheapo Speedtouch Home around the world for this reason alone. I
will probably try anyway.
BTW, does anyone know where the Cabra exchange is located? I've been told
my line has failed the test for some unspecified reason; the salesperson
could not determine *why* the line failed (apparently that's the way
they've set the testing system up). The reasons could include
(a) the line is too crappy, or
(b) my home is too far from the exchange
Basically, if the problem is (a), I can order a brand-new line (EUR 110)
and get that tested (and hopefully upgraded) instead.
Alternatively, if it's (b), I'm screwed either way, and might as well save
my EUR 110 and stick with EUR 250 / month phone bills until Leap or ESAT
Another DSL q: are ESAT selling any DSL in Dublin? All signs seem to
indicate Limerick/other-regions-that-are-not-Dublin only at the moment.
