Hello

Apologies if in wrong forum. Looking to switch my father from sim only pay and go expensive 3 option. Is Go Mo a reliable network as in coverage (Cork city based) and is the lifetime deal €12.99 a good option, seems to good to be true?

I've had no problems with them, switched when they first launched, using mostly on the south side of the city. GoMo are owned by Eir so they use the same network. 4G most of the time

48 are offering all calls, texts and 100Gb of data for 7.99 at the moment. It uses the 3 network and 4g is available

I moved my whole family to Gomo. Apart from one issue with a number not being ported over correctly they have been fine.

Very confusing, very positive feedback on here but awful reviews on Trust Pilot with mentions of hidden charge etc.

I left Vodafone recently, my only issue with them was the €25 monthly bill when there are so many much cheaper alternatives.

The mention of Eir instantly puts me off Go Mo. I went with the €7.99 offer from 48 as others in the house have it and have no problems. Yes they get some terrible reviews, but so do Go Mo and Vodafone get even worse reviews.

Sim arrived, I activated it online, ported my number and was able to make calls an hour later. My data was not working, the agent on web chat talked me through the steps to fix the problem, data was then available, so a speedy and almost trouble free change over.

Everything is great since, as long as it stays like that, at €7.99 it is a great deal.

3 of us in our household were with 48 for just over 5 years, for €9.99 per month, inclusive minutes was fine, data was fine for me, but not for kids, switched all 3 of us over to Gomo last January, €9.99 per month, now have unlimited data and calls. I see 48 have since upgraded their offering now, more data and a cheaper price.

I had a few issues with Gomo, bank security sms texts not coming through, logged a call and it was sorted.

Had the odd issue with 48, but generally speaking it was trouble free, the unlimited data with Gomo, is easily worth the €2 extra per month, but both are very good packages.

One great thing about 48 is when you have kids, they cannot spend more than the monthly limit as its not billpay, but prepaid, but on Gomo, which is bill pay, they can potentially spend more, as they could send an sms or call a non Irish number, this is not
Possible on 48, unless you add additional credit.

Both packages also mean, one is buying “unlocked” mobile phones, but this has not been a problem, as its now very cheap to get a phone unlocked, and easy to buy an unlocked new or second hand phone.

GoMo are Eir, 48 are 3, so base your reception query on how good those are for your area. Personally I've always found Eir (and GoMo) a bit poorer in the country than in cities and towns.

I'm with GoMo since launch and v happy in Dublin, but definitely found it more patchy in the country.

My son has been on 48 since June with no issues whatsoever. Great value for the service provided.

Put my son on GoMo and haven't had any problems with it.

Have you looked at the hidden charges on all the other contracts? They're full of them. Just don't let your dad watch Netflix on holidays on his phone and you'll be fine.

GOMO fine. When with 3, I was able to use the monthly PAYG credit for the odd UK call. Calls to UK are charged extra by GOMO on top of the monthly fee. However, for the price its great. The unlimited data is handy during lockdown to watch youtube and netflix.
