'48' Mobile operator - Prepaid offer - 3000mins & 5000 texts €10per month

Hey lads,
This is my first post so hope this is of use to some people?!
New mobile operator called '48' launched yesterday - its owned by Telefónica (O2 Ireland) so from my experience their coverage is good..
The below paragraph if from their website http://www.48months.ie/
'For those who are interested in where we have come from, we are independent but we are part of the overall Telefonica family, and we run our service on the O2 network.'

3000mins to irish mobile networks per month
5000texts to irish mobile networks per month
20mins to irish landlines per month
All for €10 per months

500mb of data per week for €2 (from the T&C's it looks like data will cost more from the end of Feb)
Prepaid sim only - have to port your number to them with your unlocked phone..
Can only buy your topup online
500mb of data per week for €2
Customers care - looks like email or online chat only

It say on their website that this is for customers who are of the age 18-22 years old however it doesn’t look like they require ID, but sure you can say you are of that age bracket ;-)

So can you top up by €10, and buy 5 x €2 internet add-ons to run one after another?

Is it even legal to restrict a service to people of a certain age?

I didn't think you could discriminate based on age, maybe I'm wrong.

I'm probably just a bit doddery not being in the 18-22 age bracket anymore.

I guess you'd top up €20 - €10 would go on your calls and texts
Then use the remaining €10 how you like?!

Cant see anywhere on their website where they require ID so you can say you are 18

They charge a €10 monthly membership fee, you pay this yourself online, no contract. That covers your calls, texts and landline calls.

An extra €2 for 500mb which is also purchased online.

If you miss your monthly membership payment, calls and texts are gone until you pay it.

Thats my understanding of it anyway

If you topup €10 it seems this will be deducted for the free calls and texts addon.
So maybe topup with €20 so you could buy your data addon..
