BTW, you are not testing speedtest.net from the app, do you? Because that works for me too strangely.

OK, I got an update.

speedtest.net is blocked by Vodafone's APN proxy. 10.24.59.100, Port 80.

If you use the above APN proxy, you won't be able to use speedtest.net.

Cleared it away and just left live.vodafone.com and the website works now.

mega.nz still does not work.

I've noticed my 4G speed has reduced the past few days and I've been picking up 3G where I'd usually be picking up 4G.

Vodafone contract is up and weighing up my next move. Considering 48 but I do like how steady the Vodafone connection is around my way and where I holiday. Have looked Vodafone x or even a phone upgrade on the 40 quid a month plan as I get a reduction on that through work. Does the 10mb limit they're mentioning for these plans now actually apply in real world use? Is there any way around it?

Happening for months can be outstanding to dreadfully dire

You could trial 48 and see if it suits you before switching.

1 of the Vodafone X packages does not have the 10mb limit but does have a 10 GB limit.

The Postfone package, that runs on the Vodafone network, does not have any speed limit and a 25 GB limit.

Post mobile was only 3g, maybe it's different now.

There's only one Vodafone X plan for new signups as far as I can tell.

postmobile always looks appealing as a vodafone product at a cheaper price but there's people on boards.ie who were quite unhappy with them and got very poor speeds. I don't know anyone with them so it's hard to judge.

The missus was with them for a while, she always had a connection but significantly slower than VF.

The only benefit of postmobile is the extra data compared to Vodafone's Chat Extra plan.

Post mobile have 2 different plan durations....31 days if you auto renew but only 28 days if you top up manually. They also cap roaming at 250 minutes.


Their market share is too low to be counted separately. They are included with Virgin Mobile and Lyca with a combined share of under 4%. PM would be lucky to have 1%. With Vodafone at around 35%, PM haven't a hope of gaining any significant share with their current pricing strategy. They can't be making much profit on that market share, probably barely breaking even.

Yeah. The PM pricing strategy needs a refresh. Their target audience seems to be a mix of elderly who go into Post Offices, people who perceive An Post as offering good customer care and those who want to stay on the Vodafone network but with a better value package (albeit there is now very little difference to Vodafone X).

At some point Vodafone are going to have to do something to compete with web-based-only operators like 48 and GoMo. Unlikely that Vodafone will use PM as a route to market but maybe they might consider that option.
