Was a bit shocked to hear about this today untill I learned that the National Broadband Scheme seems to mainly exist to provide broadband to rural areas. Eircom might have been the favorite but they’ve already demonstrated they can’t serve rural communities. Only trouble with 3 is their customer service which nearly drove me mad the last time I was with them. Their support is completely outsourced to somewhere in India and unless they get their act together then I’m still not hopeful. Oh and at the minute I can’t get a 3 signal here either but maybe that will change..
