I changed to them and back again. No coverage at work, albeit I'm homeworking for the next while but trying to get hold of them was impossible.

Anyone have any recommendations?

I'm on my 2nd month with 48 now and they've been great. No issues at all.
Just a point to note - I finished the VF Spotify plan 4-5 months ago and they still have me down as a premium plan! So you could be lucky too

Thanks. I will most likely get family Spotify eventually as I would miss it.
Just looked at 48 there. The 20gb membership would do me. I gather then that you just buy call minutes as an add on?
What's the coverage like?

Coverage is same as Three.

9.99 plan is 20GB, 300 mins, all text
14.99 plan is 40GB, 300 mins, all text

What, if any, are the downsides to 48? Can you skip a month or is it a contract that you commit to and, if so, how long? Thanks for any help - you seem to have a great handle on this stuff

Does GoMo have similar coverage to Vodafone?
I was with Three but when I'd go to my parents or visiting other places for weekends there'd be no coverage.

Apart from people like myself, who are only with Vodafone for coverage reasons, how do they expect to keep customers by taking value away?
I suspect they're relying on the power of laziness as well.

Got the text and would consider moving but I do think Vodafones coverage is worth a premium. My in laws have a holiday home in the arse hole of nowhere and no one (gomo, eir business, 3, tesco) has coverage there by me, and I have 4 bars on 4G.

Also, I was on 48 network for about 5 years before Vodafone, brilliant service and value

Vodafone does have the best coverage where I'm living, thanks to a hill blocking other providers.

I'm not sure what to do now. If I stick with Vodafone, I'll drop X in favour of Chat Extra €20, which has 10GB data (no mention of throttled speed) and unlimited calls and texts to any network.

GoMo is the cheapest, so I might gamble on getting a SIM and see what the coverage is like, but I had a Meteor SIM years ago and had to stand outside to get any signal...

Is there any other MVNO that piggybacks on Vodafone network?

GoMo is owned by Eir, so I wonder would it be worthwhile getting a free Eir sim and checking how they fare? (In terms of coverage I mean...)

48 is PAYG only.

48 forum with common FAQs etc...
https://community.48.ie/

Having the same coverage as 3 means possible congestion at peak times due to 3's unlimited data.
