Tried this today,was told as a former o2 costumer I’m not entitled to this, in fact they could offer me €30 / month, an increase from what I’m currently paying!

Some wild speculation ...

Even since GoMo arrived on the scene I have speculated that 48 might be a route to market for Three to compete with GoMo. MAYBE that is about to happen.

Three clues ...

Three have just acquired 48.ie (it was previously owned by an article 48 campaign group).

Three have placed a notice on 48months.ie saying "The 48 website will be down for essential maintenance from 11pm 20th November to 8am 21st November."

Posters here and elsewhere have said that Three have told them that they are preparing to launch a competitive offering to GoMo.

Wild speculation but perhaps Three are going to launch a GoMo competitive offering via 48 on Thursday 21 November.

Delighted I found this thread, thanks OP. Had reached end of contract and went on webchat asking what they could offer me for SIM only. Was offered €30, then €20 but I held out and mentioned that that was still double what my son was paying GoMo. Finally got the €10 per month deal. Took about an hour on webchat, which is crazy, but for me the savings mean it was an hour well spent.

I'm not currently a Three customer. I chanced my arm with inline chat to see if they could price match with GoMo on their 30 day rolling bill pay €30 pm plan, but no dice there. Was told that their €10 offers were finished and presumably I wouldn't get it anyhow as I wasn't an existing customer.

Just wondering if anyone has gotten then to price match GoMo in recent times, as most people on this thread got it done a month ago, I wonder are they doing still doing it, especially now as GoMo have announced that they're ending their offer in January?

Also, I'm thinking now of just signing up to their 30 day SIM only plan and paying €30 for the first month and then once I'm an "existing" customer they may be able to drop it down to a tenner a month for me?

I know no-one can say either way for sure, but anyone reckon this might work for me?

Very much doubt it, don’t see why any company would be interested in giving such an offer to a customer who is only with them 1 month.

My wife and I are both on 30 day SIM only plans with Three. I contacted them yesterday and they dropped the price for each of us to €10pm for 12 months after initially offering €15pm. That said, we've been with them for a few years, I'd imagine they'd be less likely to offer that deal to new customers.

Im out of contract at the moment with 3, 25euro a month for 150 minutes, 150 texts and 2Gs of data(something crap like that anyway). Been with 02 and then switched to 3 automatically and just stayed. Ive tried them a few time to price match Gomo, no luck. They keep saying there brining out there own offer and the bes tthey could go to for the same limits is 20euro

No, I got my €30 per month reduced but I am with them years, at that time I asked the agent if I got the same deal for my son Then I would port over his number. They said no it’s for existing customers only to retain customers.

Or just delaying until the GoMo offer ends.

Hoping people will be too lazy to switch.

Just switch. Three will probably bring out an offer that's only for new customers.
