48, Ireland’s first truly digital-only youth mobile network, is changing up mobile with the introduction of two totally new SIM only plans sure to revolutionise the data experience, giving customers more choice and flexibility than ever before.  The new plans, starting from just €9.99 per month also offer a range of incredible new flexi-data features allowing customers to experience a mobile network in a way that truly works for them.



In what is a first for any mobile network in Ireland, customers can CARRY, SAVE, SHARE, SWAP AND DONATE their data each month; this is a good move here which no other networks offer and might swing customers but the overall allowance might not cut it for an extra 3 euro a month from GOMO with 80GB of data. DATA IS KING these days..

    • Roll any excess data over to next month before you lose it.
    • We get a lot of rainy days in Ireland. Save 5GB for a really wet one or an emergency.
    • BFFs share everything. If yours is on 48 and needs some data, share some of yours through the My48 App.
    • Turn minutes into gigabytes. Exchange minutes not used for extra data
    • Down on data? Mates have nothing for you? Once a month, we’ll spot you 1GB and you can get us back next month – we’re sound like that.
  • DONATE IT Turn data into donations. Donate up to 1GB of data to 48’s chosen charity, FoodCloud (equivalent of 50 cent).

The new plans not only represent greater flexibility but also allow customers to do all of the things they love like talk, text, internet… without having to worry about cost.

For €9.99 a month, customers get 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 20GB data. 48 has also introduced a second membership plan for €14.99 per month offering customers 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 40GB of data.

Both memberships also offer 4G connectivity as standard and a monthly EU data roaming allowance is included. What’s more, there is no limit on the number of customers who can avail of these new membership plans – they are available to anyone looking to change up their mobile experience!

The new membership plans have been live since April 2020 with existing customers making the most of the flexi-data deals.

Speaking about the new membership plans, Eilis Fitzgerald, Marketing Manager, 48 said; “We’re incredibly excited to unveil our two new membership plans today. Since 2012, 48 is Ireland’s first digital-only youth mobile network and more recently we recognised the need to freshen up our membership plans to better suit our customer’s needs. We listened to our target market and have created a mobile experience that is truly different, offering the flexibility that our customers crave. Finally, Ireland has a mobile network serving the youth market, offering a revolutionary data experience, greater flexibility at an affordable price point.”

For new customers looking to change up their mobile network, it’s simple to join; customers can visit 48.ie or download the My48 app, fill in their details to receive their new SIM through An Post to any address in Ireland. There’s no need for existing customers to change their SIM, they can simply log on to 48.ie and sign up for one of the new monthly memberships. New customers also have the option to trial the service first by ordering a SIM preloaded with 1GB of data before choosing to activate their account.

Ireland’s first digital only network, 48 customers have the benefit of managing their account exclusively online or by speaking with a member of 48’s dedicated webchat team who are available seven days a week. 48 customers will also benefit from 98% 4G population coverage as standard.
