Eircom's New Deal

I read yesterday in the Sunday Business Post that Eircom will be upgrading broadband speeds to 8MB. (I tried to provide a link to the article on the paper’s site but it is brutal to navigate). I was so impressed with Eircom’s deal that I started looking around to see if I could upgrade my own “1 MB,” non-Eircom connection. Then the SBP author, Adrian Weckler, tweeted today that Eircom was also preparing its 3 strikes team to cut off those it claims are downloading illegally.
Thanks for reminding me to stay clear of Eircom.
