    €9.99 per month
    - 20GB
    - All SMS
    - 300 minutes
    - 7 GB EU data

    You can swap 100 minutes for 1GB, 200 minutes for 2GB or 300 minutes for 3GB. You can carry out a maximum of three swaps per membership providing you have sufficient minutes.

    Details: https://48.ie/memberships

    4G data.

    This is one of the best value prepay packages on the market. Eir's GoMo package obviously might be better for those that want bill pay or more data.

    Three's customer service is absolutely abysmal. I would not recommend signing a contract with this company even it it were free.

    Three own 48.

    Their terms disallow tethering so maybe someone can confirm whether it's enforced or not.

    Yes I get that but they are different networks, it's like saying Eir sky broadband because sky resell eir lines, you wouldn't do it. Just seems a bit misleading to me.

    It's about ownership. Eir don't own Sky.

    The owner of 48 is Three.
    The network that 48 use is Three.
    The customer service is done via a team inside Three customer service.
    (Granted elements of the customer experience such as the website are different).

    Multiple people have said "Eir GoMo". It is the same principal.

    Anyways, this really is a minor point.

    Sorry man, I didn't mean to be dissing the offer or anything it's quite good if all you need is 20gb per month then it's good you can get it for a tenner. The more competition in the market the better.

    Is tethering allowed?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,287 ✭✭✭ JTMan


    Is tethering allowed?

    Effectively yes. They do not stop you tethering. See posts above.

    Is 20GB much. Say you’re at home 30% of day (WiFi) and out and about for 70% (data). With the listening to Spotify on and off and other internet / push notifications on a daily basis

    It is bad,bit how often if ever do folk use customer service.


    Do you need a new sim if three own it?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,051 ✭✭✭ Truckermal


    Three is rubbish I switched to GoMo and have fantastic signal everywhere.

    Yeah, I mentioned that in the OP. This effectively means that people can get up to 1,200 minutes per month.
    My understanding is you can swap minutes for extra data but you can't swap data for extra minutes.

    I use about 7-8GB an average month. This is good as it's per month not 28 days so you're only paying 12 times a year rather than 13.

    No sign up fee either - which eir or gomo has. I'm interested


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,983 ✭✭✭✭ kneemos


    There's a 40 GB option for fifteen quid with the 300 minutes.

    Thanks for the clarification. Not crystal clear on their website but seems like you are right. I have updated the OP.

    For the sake of 9.99, it's worth the risk. They aren't that bad.

    It's not like ANY of our mobile operators are known for customer service - why do you think they can offer cheap plans?

    The vast majority of people will never need to contact them anyway.

    Pity, that's me out, would burn through 300 mins in a under a week

    Cheapest bloody website I think I've ever seen.

    With 48 last 3 years find them great


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,716 ✭✭✭ irishchris


    Was with them also and found them excellent but moved due to low data allowance. Wish they had more mins than 300 though!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,667 ✭✭✭ Ten Pin


    My understanding is you can swap minutes for extra data but you can't swap data for extra minutes.

    They almost definitely changed the swap options since the new plans were announced...there was a page with details of how data could be swapped for minutes (1GB for 100 minutes, 2GB for 200, 3 GB for 300 up to max of 900 minutes) but it's either been edited or deleted for whatever reason and now it's the other way around which is less useful IMO but 300 mins is possibly enough for a lot of customers and for 10 euro it's good value for that amount of data, minutes and text.

    That's terrible from them if they have. I won't be switching anyway due to low minutes allowance but would prefer them over gomo. Sticking with gomo though due solely to more minutes


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,316 ✭✭✭ podgeandrodge


    for anyone interested, they say that the free sim has 1gb of data included on delivery. So if you want a free sim to use for whatever reason, even as a test sim or something for the dual sim in your phone, nothing to lose here.

    Can't see any details on the site, are the calls to all networks & landlines?

    It'll be national minutes so either to Irish mobile networks or landlines.

    Edit: from their email when you order a SIM.

    The details of each Membership are as follows;
    20GB Membership
    300 minutes for calls ROI and EU
    Unlimited any network texts ROI only
    20GB of data of which 7GB can be used when roaming in the EU
    40GB Membership
    300 minutes for calls ROI and EU
    Unlimited any network texts ROI only
    40GB of data of which 9GB can be used while roaming in the EU

    Can anyone find clear T&C's? They say "Roll any excess data over to next month before you lose it". Interesting and innovative.

    So you can save up to 5Gb unused data per month up to a max of 50Gb valid for 12 months. Decent.
