Ireland’s complicated relationship with broadband is well-documented, with people in some areas spoilt for choice of superfast providers, while others are stuck in some of the worst broadband blackspots in the EU.
If you’re one of the tens of thousands of victims of Ireland’s ‘urban-rural digital divide’, availability is by far the most important factor when choosing a provider. In many cases, you only have one or two options to choose from.
On the other hand, if you’re lucky enough to have the choice of Virgin Media, eir, Sky, Vodafone, Pure Telecom and more, you’re likely to base your broadband decisions on the features and price that's right for you.
You might live in a busy house and need a plan with a speed and data allowance capable of keeping everyone happy as they browse on their devices. Or you might live alone and just use the internet for emails and social media, in which case a simple, affordable deal will do just fine.
Basically, everyone has different circumstances and preferences and there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits all broadband deal anymore. And that’s before you even start to think about whether or not you want to bundle your broadband with a home phone, mobile phone or TV plan. It can all get very complex and confusing very quickly.
That's where we come in!
We have completely re-invented how you can compare and switch broadband providers on bonkers.ie, making it much easier to find the best match for your specific situation and preferences.
Finding your best broadband match is now a simple, three-step process.
Once you visit bonkers.ie/compare-broadband, you’ll be asked to enter your address. This allows us to rule out all of the providers and plans that aren’t available in your area.
Then, we’ll ask you three simple questions about what you’re looking for in a broadband plan. This helps us to get an understanding of what plan will suit your unique preferences. You can also add TV or home phone at this stage if you wish.
Finally, we’ll instantly compare every broadband plan in your area to find your best match. We'll also show you a range of other broadband options, just in case you’re the curious type and want to see what else is out there.
