Eir mobile, anyone having issues with losing signal on the west side of the city?

    I've been with Eir for 2 months now and I'm having constant issues with losing signal, someone else in my house is having the same. I have rang them twice now and they gave me some blurb about updating a mast in the Galway area and that signal is about to become much better "next week".
    At this point I'm not sure if it's genuinely a mast issue or if it's my sim etc. Is anyone else having the same trouble?

    I live on the west side of the city & had zero coverage in my house & zero coverage in work (east side of the city)

    Moved to Vodafone.

    I find eir coverage very good in the city, I am over on the westside at times also and no issues full 4G.

    Was that recently?

    I switched to Vodafone last year.

    I was with three for years but switched to eir mobile recently because they do my home broadband and had a deal.

    I regret it to be honest and I’ll be going back next year when my contract ends.

    Three was just way faster and more reliable.

    My experience was the exact opposite. I had mobile BB with eir but the 50G cap was just too low so changed to 3. I regretted it immediately it was absolute dirt. 500kbs at peak times in the evening was a a regular occurance whereas eir rarely dropped below around 10mbs.

    I’ve been an eir mobile user for over 10 years and honestly could not fault them.

    I moved from vodafone to Three, a big mistake. If I go into Dunnes, B&Q or Joyces the phone says emergency calls only, no coverage and it isn't an issue with the phone.
    Back to vodafone at the end of the year.
