The best broadband-only deals in Ireland right now

In a time where landlines are becoming obsolete and TV is increasingly moving away from the telly and onto the internet as a result of the rise of online streaming services, it’s no wonder more and more people are ditching dual and tripleplay bundles in favour of broadband-only packages. In this article, we take a look at some of the best ones currently on the market.

When your mobile phone is likely to be on your person at any given time of the day, the need for landline phones is becoming less and less. It’s a similar story when it comes to TV. These days, we prefer to watch what we want, when we want; meaning that a lot of us now either pre-record our favourite shows and catch-up later or simply subscribe to on-demand online streaming services to get our entertainment at our leisure.

Therefore, it’s not surprising that we’re often asked here at bonkers.ie for our advice on the best broadband-only packages. To replace TV and landline services, customers want and look for a great value broadband service that will provide them with both the speed and reliability they need to handle a variety of different tasks on a multitude of electronic devices. Below you’ll find a few of our favourite deals.
