Chorus Ups Cable Speed

(Via). Picked up this post earlier this evening having been away from the PC most of the weekend, at least in an online capacity anyway. So it seems that Chorus are upping their cable speed and lowering their prices, bringing them into line with NTL. Meaning that my 1mb cable service comes down from €30 to €20. But seen as I’m already paying €30 a month, their new pricing structure gives me access to a 3mb service at that price.

Low and behold, a DSL speed test this evening across various sites is showing an average d/s of 2.5mb. Do I thank Chorus? Think so…

Not only that, but if I wanted a 6mb line it looks like its only an extra tenner a month 🙂

    6MB – oooh. And that is not up on their website at all.

    Aye, was looking for it earlier and there isn’t a trace, no doubt it will turn up soon enough. Haven’t heard anything in the papers or by standard post (and they’re not too bad at alerting subscribers to various offers). Won’t see me complaining today with the cable speed having jumped almost 2mb 🙂

    € 35 / month get you a 384kb adsl connection in Greece. Bread is cheap though.

    Ouch… Can you check your email through the bread? 😉
