Some of the 48/Gomo etc offers may or may not last the next 6 months but you are still getting unlimited all for 6 months at €5 a month which is cheapest out there by far.
In 6 months time you can move to whoever is cheapest then.
As it's a 30 day contract, if you wanted to jump ship anytime within the 6 months, you can.
6 months Virgin is €30, there are people paying that with Vodafone per month!
My point there probably won't be a 7.99 offer on the market in 6 months

Why not?
Who would have said 6 months ago we would have the current offers around now?
A bit of competition is always welcome. .

I am on three now, good coverage, but from 18h-00h speed is slow only 2-5 mbps, in the morning and late in the night good speed 50mbps.

Well the 48 deal goes in January so might be a safer option

One can hope but I don't see this being extended beyond January. Why would they when they have nobody undercutting them. Over time 5g should bring 4g only plans down but we could be waiting.

If you are on Virgin mobile, just call them and say you are thinking of leaving (48/Gomo) due to price and they should give you that offer.

They wouldn't for me, tried a couple of months ago when they had 12 months @ €15 and I was paying €25 after previous 6 months @ €5 had run out. Said it was for new customers only and wouldn't budge so now with 48 paying €7.99.

With me they offered to reduce my monthly cost to the offer that was on at the time when I rang up to cancel.
Told them unless they sorted my SMS text problem, I was off, they didn't so I left.

Had this before. Couldn't never get data anywhere in Dublin. Whether in the city centre or the airport.
Gave up and went back to eircom.

Am I right in saying that this offer also applies to existing customers?

I've been on the €25 a month rolling 30 Day Plan since signing up to the €5 a month offer for 6 months and €25 thereafter way back in 2018.

The offer wasn't available to existing customers once they had already availed of it.

However it seems existing customers can actually get it for €5 a month now?

Existing Customer Offer - €5 for 6 months
Also just to say, I've been using Virgin Mobile daily for the last two years now and I have never had an issue with getting verification texts.
