Great deal. Bit late to the party though. They lost me to Gomo months ago. Didn't ever have a problem with them, but I've not had any trouble with Gomo either.

Link to the offer https://www.virginmedia.ie/mobile/sim-only/

New customers only.

The offer is for the first 12 months and then it's 25 EUR a month. GoMo offer obviously is advertised as for life.

Yeah it's not a bad offer but €25pm after 12 months. I imagine most that take up the offer will move again in 12 months. Will take a lot go get me to move away from gomo now.

I suppose it's a way for them to limit the offer to 12 months as they know most people won't pay the 25pm.

Weren’t they do a deal where the mobile was €5 a month? Maybe it was because I had the home BB with it.

Personally, I found it brutal. Never has any coverage (at home or work) Got did after one month. I think they piggyback off 3’s network. I could be wrong

Sounds like a great offer, thanks! If I buy a Virgin Sim would I be able to keep my old number?

You’re not ...

Do VM still have issues receiving some 2FA, security codes, etc?

Thanks OP just signed up.

No money was taken from my account and no porting details on the sign up - assume this happens when sim arrives??

What's their online system like regarding keeping track of any potential additional costs, what minutes and data I've used etc?

Have my log in details but just says error in my account section, presumably since I've literally signed up.

Try using the ComReg link for different mobile providers coverage, by entering your area code.
https://coveragemap.comreg.ie/map

Keep in mind that just because it says your area is good coverage, could also mean a lot of people are using that network and data speeds could be slow.
In my case Comreg says Vodafone is good for my location and GOMO is fair. But i get better data speeds on GOMO than a Vodafone, as there are more people using Vodafone.

I recently ported over to Virgin mobile.

Customer Service is via WhatsApp chat at the moment and it was the most excruciatingly awful service I've had the misfortune to experience - and that includes attempting to sort billing issues with Eir.

Can anyone here recommend a good Sim Router, as this could boost sim data speeds.

Thanks! On Vodafone X plan myself but said I'd save the tenner a month and they're throttling the speeds soon.

Is there a way to test the sim that arrives before porting it over to check coverage, compare vs Vodafone etc?
