“Three” broadband customers facing steep price rises as subsidy runs out


Around 45 thousand rural broadband customers are about to be hit with a price hike of 180 euro.

The Irish Independent says a government subsidy paid to Three is about to expire - meaning rural broadband customers will be hit with a 75 percent price incease - as well as a slowdown in service.

The counties most affected are Galway, Mayo, Cork and Kerry, with a significant amount of customers in Donegal also facing increases.
