Yeah, I suspect all technical/back-office services are carried out by Vodafone. An Post only provide the branding/marketing and retail/distribution.

Thanks for clarifying that. I just ordered the sim last night online and the way it was worded on checkout as a once off €20 had me thinking otherwise.

I wonder do you login to a vodafone web account/app or is there some sort of postmobile portal for bills, usage etc?

They have their own portal. It's not pretty, but it works.

They support team seems fairly small, so you get to recognise names.

so why oh why don't vodafone just sell this as their own. It seems far better than their own offerings. Give me 16Gb 3G data anyday over 1Gb 4G data on vodafone network as speeds will be fast enough for all tasks.

Aspider currently provides the MVNE service to PostMobile going by their clients page. There's a press release on their Downloads page under 'NVME'.

Data connectivity is also provided through Aspider's network, which shows on some speed test services such as TestMy (from a few months ago):

Not sure where you are getting that idea...

See my speed test on Eir... PayG

Never have issues in the country where I would be regularly Mayo/Galway/Sligo/Cork

I updated my post, spend a lot of time in rural areas and only issue I ever had was in Erris peninsula, kind of a given as to where it is...

Switched over today. No real hassle at all. Have me on the old plan (500 mins/texts 14GB) but customer care said they'll sort that out and get me on the correct All You Need plan shortly. Getting right through to customer service and not spending lifetimes on hold is a very welcome change from previous provider. The new GoMo (Eir) offer might steal the thunder on this offer however.
