Eir price hikes hit long term customers – Brian Stanley TD

21 September, 2017 - by Brian Stanley TD

Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Communications Brian Stanley TD has expressed his disappointment at the announcement from Eir that it will hit long term customers with price increases.

Deputy Stanley said:

“The price hike announced is going to affect the many long-term customers who have been with Eir and not those who have recently signed up.

“We must remember that this latest price hike from Eir comes on the back of a rise last September. As well as price hikes from many of other providers in the market. So what is the long term benefit of the various offers put forward by telecoms providers?

“Eir is the company the Government constantly promote and claim credit, as leading the broadband roll out in rural Ireland. In the manner of the roll out they can be seen as cherry picking rural sites and may ultimately have a disproportionate grip over the further expansion.

“In these circumstances, we have to ask what can be expected going forward for rural customers?”
