East Cork Broadband

East Cork Broadband was set up in late 2004 to provide Internet access in the Midleton area. At that time there were many areas where broadband was not available due to the slow progress of mainstream providers like Eircom. Over the last few years we have brought service to several communities such as Dungourney and Aghada. This has helped both business and home users alike to move into the digital age.

The best alternative to areas without Fiber!
Installation was quickly done and successful. Internet usable straight away.
We never had issues or problems with the package we have taken.
The internet connection was very reliable. If we had an issue, Malcolm and his team were very responsive and could sort things out very quickly.
My thanks to Malcolm and the crew!

The best alternative to areas without Fiber!
My installation was done in record time, ordered on a Friday and was installed come Monday, work was done efficiently quietly and quickly.
The service since has been fantastic, with flexible packages and even a stealthly introduced package upgrade.
If you go over your download cap, your speed drops, but it’s still useable at a 2mb line.
My thanks to Malcolm and the crew!

Installed for a year and a half now and I’ve only had two minor outages, one of which was caused by an upgrade, so I’m very happy. It’s nice to deal with a non-bot for a change. :) Thanks Malcolm.

I’ve been with East Cork Broadband for the last 3 years. There service is flawless, straight talking, you get what it says on the tin, great system when you hit your daily limits service gets reduced but not cut and no additional charge.
I have the opportunity of using several different broad band providers with my job and East Cork Broadband is 1 I have at home.
As previously stated here, East Cork Broadband is a fine example of a small enterprise delivering world class performance
Thanks Malcom and keep up the good work

Time has come for me to say good bye for now, East Cork Broadband have offered a great quality service to me over the last few years. From the get go, East Cork Broadband was top class, from the engineer who first installed the antenna, to their personal customer service, brilliant. But time has come for me to move on.
Restasure I will keep an eye on their products to see in the future what great products they will have to offer.
East Cork Broadband is ideal for anyone living outside the last mile from a Fibre Cabinet, who is in need of fast reliable broadband with a great a level of personal service.
Thanks Malcolm

It’s a year on since I last posted a review regarding East Cork Broadband and I feel so strongly about their service I want to follow up. 12 months on and I never had one day loss of service, I can’t say the same about my previous ISP. Speed has been great, I’m on the 7mbits package, which is fast enough to stream HD from Netflix and iTunes, tried and tested. The reliability is so good that I dropped by fixed PSTN line, now my telephone calls are through the VoIP service Blueface.ie recommended by Malcolm, it’s saving me a small fortune.
I only hope that in the near future with a new fiber network available in Midelton that East Cork Broadband will be able to provide an upgraded service much like the fixed line ISP’s.

P.S. Great service Mr.Stead and a great thanks from me.

We have 4 pc’s in the house and we are very happy with service. We live very remotely and eircom
can’t even manage a realiable phone connection, so this is a life saver

I’ve been using East Cork Broadband for about 18 months in the Whitegate area and the service has been very reliable. We use it for voice & data and the service has been flawless. Very glad there was an alternative to the very poor Eircom dsl & great value.

I have been with East Cork for 2 years now, excellent in every way and they are always just a phone call away if needed. I have been an eircom customer in various towns in Ireland and never received the level of service I currently get from East Cork. Highly recommended.

What can I say that has not been said before, East Cork Broadband deserve all of thier 5 stars, I’ve been a customer for the past year, switch from Digiweb.
From the get go East Cork Broadband have been fantastic, from the installation of the equipment, broadband service, fast ping, constant 7mb down and 1mb up, sure beats adsl, what’s more an excellent costumer service, second to none, besides good value.
Keep it up East Cork Broadband

Review by Bart, January 10, 2012

I had been using Vodafone Mobile Broadband which never gave me what i wanted or what i was paying for. I have only had East Cork Broadband for 1 day and its a revelation and it has already shown the vodafone up completely.

Where do i begin. I had major concerns about switching my broadband from my telephone line to wireless, but I could no longer live with eircom and their ludicrous line rental, so I bit the bullet and decided to go with East Cork Broadband. They were my preferred choice as I had found nothing but good reviews on the internet along with the fact that you do not need to commit to long term contracts. I cancelled my phoneline\broadband and moved to East Cork broadband with blueface VOIP for my phone and what a brilliant move it’s been on both counts. The consistency of the upload\download speeds is remarkable, even during poor weather which was initially something I had thought might be an issue. If you are looking for a broadband solution in the East Cork area then look no further than East Cork Broadband. I’m more than pleased to give a local business my custom when they provide such a high quality service.

I have had East Cork Broadband at home for about 3 or 4 years in Midleton. I have a wireless router, a Mac Mini as a media centre, iTunes, uTorrent, CCTV, etc. running on it and it always works flawlessly. Very happy with it. I use o2 dongle on the road, uuuuggghhh, can’t wait to get home to my REAL broadband!

Well done, keep up the good work.

Excellent service. I work from my home office for a major international company.

I conduct regular video conferences with colleagues around the world and the service is so quick that nobody realises that I am out in the sticks in Co Cork. Despite using the system for 8 to 10 hours a day and transferring a mass of data I have had only two short service interruptions in that time both of which were fixed very quickly with great response.

East Cork Broadband is a fine example of a small enterprise delivering world class performance – highly recommended

No installation fee – just a deposit of €50 on the router
susposed to be 3 gb i always get betwwen 2 gb to 3 gb
€30 a month 2gb Daily download (after this speed is limited – no extra charge)
Customers support is the mobile number of the guy who installed it – no menues or call centres.
only ever went down once -just needed to ring to get a setting changed

what more could you ask for?
