Re: developer-friendly ISPs in Dublin

Hi Daniel,

Here are some really informative links for finding out exactly how much
support there is for IPv6 in Ireland...

... so apparently Ireland is 53rd on the list of IPv6 penetration at
1.5% ...
... although by current measurement it seems to be 20th ...
I think that some ISPs (Virgin?) are now providing IPv4 connectivity
through DSLite, even though there's nothing about it on their websites,
and I've heard that if you request IPv6 that's what you will get.

As media companies, Virgin & Sky both want to sell bundles with movies,
TV, etc, etc, so may be best avoided.  If you can't get Fibre1000 at
the location you're after then Virgin can do 360Mb/36Mb, otherwise the
normal rates in Dublin Metropolitan area are 100Mb/20Mb.  Your actual
choice can be quite restricted though.

This might one day be useful for finding where the FTTH is available,
but as far as I can see it only currently tells you about cabinet
locations :-/

Switcher & Bonkers are reasonable resources for price comparison:

Hope this is useful :-)
