There passing off advertising as a news story, 3 links to the gomo site in that article. Worded as if Joe done the digging to get the scoop. It's fake news.
RTE? Should know better, we'll see if Eir really did add 100,00 mobile subscribers in just 6 weeks in the next comreg report.

The independent says they've already hit 100,00, Joe says they expect to hit. One of them is peddling fake news, I've no time for it.

Same here...I have two GoMo sims..One in my phone and another I use at home as a hotspot for streaming YouTube, Netflix etc.. Very pleased with the service... Speeds vary from mid teens to high thirties depending on the time of day.
Great value for money to be fair.

I wonder how many here still have that o2 Golden sim from years ago.

Free calls & texts to o2 and still works with Three.
Only have to use a small bit of credit every 6 months (I think) to keep it active.
Still have mine.

what happens if more & more people use it for home broadband...will they get more strict about the data usage?

I cancelled my landline broadband with Vodafone which had a maximum download speed of 18mbps at my address..Was paying €45 per month for this..
Also switched my mobile from Vodafone PAYG which was €20 per month for unlimited calls and texts with 15gb of data..
I'm now paying €20 for the two GoMo sims and have more data than I need with faster speeds.
It works great for me on YouTube Netflix etc,even with uhd 4k content..

You can give one to another person. Me I have myself and my little lad on my account.

Saving a tenner per month on his, and 50 per month on mine for a lot more included than we were getting previously.

I was Eir previous and had a great PAYG plan that I used to top up 20 every 28 day's but since Go Mo and Eir are the same I'm getting it at half that now, and 4 times the data at exactly same speeds etc, it's a no brainer for me as I tend to buy sim free when I upgrade phones...

i'm not tech savvy....but how much data would say a one hour programme on netflix use up?

btw - what would be the best router to use GoMo for home broadband?

Have ported 3 people including myself from Eir to Gomo, no issues at all, very happy. Exact same infrastructure, just more data and cheaper.

Netflix automatically adjusts the picture resolution to match whatever download speed you are receiving,.They recommend 10mbps for hd and 25mbps for 4k..A typical movie in hd would use at least 1gb of data.
GoMo won't shut you off if you exceed the 80gb allowance per month but might reduce the speed for those who repeatedly exceed it.
