The mobiles awards are judged using a mix of in-depth consumer surveys and an expert judging panel.
The aim of the awards is to help consumers make better-informed buying decisions, by giving them independent feedback on things like the value and customer service available from providers.
We compare mobile deals from all of Ireland’s top mobile networks, and you can find the right plan at the click of a button.
Work out what’s important to you and then find a deal that matches your needs by comparing features like:
Some deals include offers or extra features e.g. 5G enabled, that we also call out.
If you’ve reached the end of your current mobile phone contract, but are still happy with your handset, a SIM-only deal could be a good option.
SIM-only plans are cheaper than plans that include a phone, as you don’t need to pay off your handset on top of your monthly costs.
The majority of plans are 30-day contracts, so you’re not tied down to a lengthy contract and have the freedom to switch to another deal after a short time.
This could work especially well if you want to test out how a particular network performs at your location.
Simply select a phone and we’ll show you the main features of the phone and the call plans available.
You can use the filters to see certain model types e.g. 64GB, data allowances e.g. 10GB or 30GB+, and colour ways.
Do the same for each phone you’re interested in until you find the right one for you.
Once you’ve chosen the right bill pay phone and call plan, you can get it by clicking on ‘Go to site’ and we’ll direct you to the deal on the provider’s website.
The biggest advantage of a bill pay phone is that you get a brand new phone when you sign up to a bill pay phone contract. This means you can generally upgrade your phone every two years, or sooner if your contract is shorter.
It’s not the cheapest option but there are some great bill pay phone deals to be found if you shop around.
Bill pay phone contracts aren’t as flexible as SIM-only ones as you’re usually tied in for 12, 18 or 24 months.
If you love having the latest innovative features, and are happy to pay for them, then replacing your handset when your contract is up could work for you.
It really depends what you’re looking for. For example, the cheapest SIM-only deal on the market may not give you the amount of calls or data you need, and the network coverage may be poor. At the same time, there’s no point paying extra for data you won’t use.
Only pay for the features you need, at the cheapest price.
It’s also worth thinking about other features you might benefit from e.g. earning Clubcard points with a Tesco Mobile plan.
Again, it depends on your individual needs. Once you know the phone and call plan features you want, you can compare all the plans that include those features, to find the best deal.
Check the total cost of each plan by adding any upfront cost to the monthly payments for the duration of the contract.
It only takes a few minutes to find a cheaper deal and start saving.
