    Mobile broadband

    can anybody suggest a good mobile broadband provider?
    I'm currently with tesco mobile which started off fairly well and is only 15 euro per month for 15 gb, however they are now using the 3 network which is desperate so i need to change.

    Any ideas?

        On Meteor sim only, it's grand when it works CM, but coverage is crap IMHO, plenty of Gaa fields I've only got E instead of 3G, daughter on Metoer too and was the only one of her group in Irish college last year who couldn't get a 3G signal in Dingle, they were all on 3.

          I tried a vodafone dongle last year. It was surprisingly fast but ate the data allowance very quickly.

          You can't get unlimited data as far as I know.

          I saw 4g working recently - it's super fast. Amazingly so.

              I've just escaped three! On off on off on off. Jes it drove me mad. You could phone Mumbai and say "look a 3 employee has just murdered my wife" and you'd get "we apologise for that sir but we just aren't allowed to knock anything off your bill and next time you email us please tell us your blood group aswell as your dob street number star sign and sexual preference or we won't be able to respond"

                Hmm. I think I've not used the correct vocabulary. What I'm looking for is not mobile data on my phone but one of those wifi yokes you put in the front room that your laptop and phones link into. Sorry

                      I have no phone line. I have one of those huawei yokes on tesco mobile. We all link into it but its slow and sometimes sporadic in its signal reception and its not 4g. I am minded to get eircom wifi but i read their forum which is a litany of complaints and thought I'd ask on here.

                      On the tv side ive just canned upc and got freeview instead, naturally it doesn't work properly but i can get bloomberg RT and babestation so I'm getting educated, becoming financially aware and the kids are going to bed much earlier.

                        Mobile broadband

                        Eircom do non phone line broadband packages, can add ur TV into it if u get fibre but eats into bandwidth

                        All providers have litany of complaints against them, they all fail sometimes

                            Works perfect for me at home. Use it for Netflix (but to be fair I don't watch lots) but mainly email, FB, iTunes etc and tis grand. I never use the full 20gb in a month.
