Lycamobile’s network coverage

Lycamobile is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), which means that rather than having its own network, it uses one that’s already established to provide its customers with network service.

Lycamobile runs off Three’s network (which merged with O2 in 2015). Three says it has 96% population coverage, so almost the whole country is covered.

What this means in practice is that if you have good reception from Three, Lycamobile will work well for you, too.

Lycamobile FAQs

Can I keep my mobile number?

Yes, this is called ‘porting’ your number and is a huge benefit.

Keeping your number means you won’t have to tell all your friends and family your new number or risk losing contact with anyone.

Your new provider will sort out moving your old number to your new network when you sign up.

Can I upgrade or change my Lycamobile SIM-only plan?

If you sign up to a Lycamobile 30-day SIM-only deal, you will be able to upgrade or change your plan easily, as you’re not tied into a long contract.

How long will it take for my SIM to arrive from Lycamobile?

Once your order is complete, it should only take a few days for your SIM to arrive. If it takes longer than this, you can contact Lycamobile on 01-437 2322 to follow up with them.

What are the advantages of SIM-only deals?

SIM-only plans are cheaper than deals that include a phone. So, if you’ve paid off your phone and are still happy with your handset, you’ll make a saving by switching to a SIM-only deal.

If you’re out of contract, you can also move to a SIM-only deal with your current provider, rather than rolling on your contract. Some networks will automatically move you to a plan-only price once your handset is paid off, so check with your provider.

SIM-only plans are also a good way to check how a new network performs without locking into a long term deal.

You could also decide to buy your phone outright, and then go for a SIM-only deal. It may work out cheaper than paying it back as part of your monthly mobile cost, but this will depend on your provider and the type of phone you plan to buy.

What do I need to switch to a Lycamobile SIM-only plan?

To switch to a Lycamobile SIM-only plan, all you need to do is sign up online.

Then, when your new SIM arrives, contact Lycamobile on 1923 to have your old number ported to your new SIM.

You may also need to contact your current mobile phone provider if you need to unlock your handset.

What is a SIM-only plan?

A SIM-only plan allows you to just pay for data, calls and texts. When you sign up you’ll get a SIM card with an allocation of data, texts and minutes, but the deal won’t include a phone.

SIM-only plans are generally cheaper and will save you money if you already have a phone you are happy with.
