Luck of the Irish?
Consumer campaigners Ireland Offline have published a damning assessment of the state of the comms market in Ireland, citing inexplicable price differentials with the rest of Europe. What I find most interesting about this is the explicit linkage to wider economic and social development issues, just the sort of orientation which seems to underpin a number of the municipal fiber and wireless initiatives we're witnessing around the world. Speaking of which, I will be attending Den Haag Telecom next week (I am praying for a simultaneous interpreter), in a country where this issue seems to be very much in play and may result in some fairly findamental changes to the landscape.
UPDATE: A Double Platinum Club reader alerts me to this scathing Comreg-bashing site.
