Whether you’re looking to sign up as a new customer or switch from your current provider, trying to find the best broadband, phone & TV deal can be a confusing minefield - especially in such a competitive market where providers are continually offering appealing incentives in the hopes of snagging you as a customer.
In this article we’re going to compare Ireland’s top four competitors eir, Sky, Virgin Media and Vodafone in terms of their Tripleplay bundles; that is their broadband, TV and home phone packages.
As Tripleplay bundles are notoriously difficult to compare like for like, for the purposes of this comparison we’ve decided to look at mid-price range bundles from all four providers.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at the best deals available now.
eir is currently offering a Tripleplay bundle that comes with unlimited 100 Mb broadband, 83 TV channels and unlimited home phone calls to landlines and mobiles in Ireland and the UK.
The deal costs €59 a month for the first 12 months and €95 a month after that. It’s an 18-month contract, meaning the average monthly bill works out at €71.
eir’s Tripleplay bundle also comes with seven free eir Sport channels.
You get €100 cashback when you join exclusively online.
New customers can add Sky Sports to this bundle for only €1 per month for the first 6 months (€40 thereafter), based on a 30 day rolling contract.
Sky's Variety Bundle comes with 90 channels, unlimited 100 Mb broadband and evening and weekend calls to Irish landline numbers.
The deal comes in at €84 a month for the first 12 months and €94 after that, but the minimum contract is only a year so you are free to switch providers once the introductory price comes to an end.
Currently a free 32" LG TV is on offer for new Sky customers joining Sky TV online. However, this offer ends on the 4th of May, so time is limited!
Virgin Media’s Full House TV, 360Mb & Mobile World Broadband Deal comes with 100 TV channels, 360 Mb unlimited broadband and unlimited calls to mobiles and landlines in Ireland and 22 international destinations.
The bundle costs €45 a month for the first 6 months and €95 a month after that. And since it’s a 12 month contract, the average monthly bill works out at €70.
Get a €60 Netflix voucher when you join online.
Vodafone is offering a Tripleplay bundle that comes with unlimited 100 Mb broadband, 82 TV channels and unlimited calls to Irish landlines.
The bundle costs €40 a month for the first 6 months and €85 a month after that. It’s an 18 month contract, so the average monthly bill comes in at €70.
With this deal, you can choose between six months of free MultiRoom viewing or six months of free eir Sport.
You can stream your favourite TV shows while out and about on the Vodafone TV Anywhere app.
