48.ie - 9.99/month Prepay SIM only (20 GB, 300 mins, All texts, 7GB EU)

€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.

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.

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

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