Can someone advise how I cancel this now prior to entering the higher cost band or what number I should ring as very little info is available on the Eir website, and secondly, I generally use my mobile just for calls and data only. Would the €15 lycamobile sim only be the one for me?

Thanks.

The offer is still there so perhaps try to switch to another provider as PAUG and sign back up as a new customer.

No need, I was on 30-day rolling contract with promo price for 6 months, went into the 7th month and called 1905 I think it was (maybe 1901) and was switched onto a new promotion price straight away. Have about 4 or 5 weeks left on it atm and I will be doing the same

Worth noting the price has increased to 19.99 for 6 months then 29.99 after 6 for non eir broadband or phone customers . I was signed back up to the 14.99 In June and the promotion came off the account early for some reason, they didn't have the 14.99 offer when I noticed recently and called up. I got credited for the increase but was only offered the 19.99 for the next 6 months

Its a 30 day rolling contract - so just ring them and ask to be put onto the newer tariff.
I keep an eye on their rates and keep doing this, and all but once in circa 4 years have I had an issue doing so.
It's at €19.99 p.m at the moment, but they tend to drop it back to €14.99 ever other month or so.
Just keep an eye on it and just ring them again in a month or so and you might get it down again from the current €19.99 tariff to €14.99 if offered again soon... but I suspect they will offer it again soon.

I only had a refusal once, after the 30 days with regards putting me on a newer lower advertised tariffs, so I just asked to be put onto the retention team and they honoured the new tariff again no problem on the 30 day rolling contract basis.

Online chat told you you need to pay a €9.99 one time activation fee to get this deal, but I don't see any mention of it on the site. Can anyone clarify please? Thanks!

My contract ended a couple of weeks ago so I rang to sign up to the 14.99 a month deal and was refused also. The agent kept trying to push the 19.99 deal.

Just off the phone to the 1800 sales team. Already have the 12 month 15€ deal since april. Was able to add two more numbers to my account so have one of my wife and one hopefully to put in Mifi dongle. Half price for them runs until October 2020.

While this is a good deal I have to say I'm disappointed with Eir's data speeds/signal. From what I remember it was far better back in the days of Meteor. Since switching to eir I've noticed many blackspots that 3 and Vodafone do not have.

They refused to extend my 6 month deal for €14.99, and there is no chance I will pay €30 per month. So I left for Virginmedia again. 5 months everything unlimited for €5 per month. Yes really. At the end I'll switch to Eir again

If it was just myself, I wouldn't bother with all this switching, but I pay data for myself and for my 3 kids. So it adds up.

I switched to this a few months ago, from an Eir business account. Since I switched the phone/coverage has gone to pot. I can be showing 3bars of 4g and still be waiting 20sec + for a webpage to open. My WiFi calling doesn’t show on my phone until I switch on airplane mode for a few seconds and then turn it off.
I am also constantly getting voicemails when I have the phone sitting beside me showing full coverage.
But it should all be the same coverage, shouldn’t it?

It should be the same yes but God knows what throttling etc they could be up to.
