When you’re comparing networks and plans, think about:

  • Coverage: If you have a mobile phone, good reception is crucial. If you’re not sure which networks have the best coverage, our dedicated guide can help.
  • Type of plan: Unlimited deals allow you to call, text and surf as much as you like. Capped deals are normally cheaper but you get a set number of minutes, texts and data.
  • Price: This is usually the most important factor. If the plan has an initial discount, make sure you also consider the ongoing monthly cost when this discount ends.

Finally, consider whether you want to bundle your mobile plan with other services like broadband, phone and TV. Broadband providers including eir and Virgin Media offer discounts on mobile plans to their broadband customers.
