Which supermarkets sell Lycamobile credit?
Supervalu do.
Dunnes? Tesco? Lidl?

Is it just me or has Lyca data gone horribly wrong.
I cant seem to get speedtest.net to work consistantly.
I've tried it in 2 dual sim phones now, a mi mix2s and a mi9.
I also have a three.co.uk sim and it works perfectly even roaming in Dublin. Accessing my cameras wont work on Lyca but will on 3. Speedtest works fine on 3.
It seems to be after they started injecting adverts.
If I use a VPN it seems to work better, but gomo.ie is starting to look inviting, however I like the UK number with Lyca and the 300 foreign minutes
Anyone any ideas?

PS Very surprisingly, 4 out of 5 for Lyca on https://ie.trustpilot.com/review/lycamobile.ie

Seriously anyone who was on Lyca should change to them (before Jan 15)

Au contraire. When things work smoothly then there is little to discuss.
I moved back to Lyca after 2 months on GoMo. Horrendous performance and experience.

About to do the same. I wouldn't say gomo is horrendous but I'm getting edge coverage anywhere I really need to use data, when it was so much better with Lycamobile.

I tried gomo for a month, can see the attraction for data but the short code texts issue was a deal breaker for me. Gave the sim to my son and went back to lyca, they were always fine for me.
Actually more reliable than my work Vodafone sim

I have no problem at all with receiving short code texts on gomo. what issues did you have?

Gomo speeds and general data availability far better than lyca for where I mostly use it. Lyca was terrible a lot of the time for data in my experience.

Lyca are on three so definitely not as good as Vodafone who have the best network overall in Ireland.

Not receiving them was the problem.
I agree gomo is better for data speeds but data is not my priority on a mobile I use my phone primarily for calls and messages and found gomo was also dropping calls occasionally and sent texts not being received.
I use a duel sim phone and travel a lot for work, overall have found the lyca signal coverage better than Vodafone but that's just my personal experience

Have both my kids kids on gomo and they love it, it's a great offer and can see the attraction but it's not for me due to above reasons
