Note that each flex unit can be used as one minute of phonecalls or two texts (so 350 flex units can be used for 350 minutes of calls or 250 minutes of calls and 200 text etc.)

You can choose one of the following add-ons:

  • Unlimited Landline Calls. Unlimited calls to all ROI landlines. 1
  • Down Time Calls. 150 evening & weekend minutes to any ROI mobiles or landlines.
  • Call N.America. Pay only 20c per minute to call landlines and mobiles in the USA and Canada.
  • Call Down Under. Pay only 38c per minute to call landlines and mobiles in Australasia.
  • Call Europe. Pay only 26c per minute to call landlines and mobiles in Europe.
  • Text All. 150 texts per month to any ROI mobile network.
  • Internet Mini. 500MB of data.
  • Internet Max. 2GB of data.

The three deals are looking like far better value than the O2 and Vodafone bundles, but three are notorious for their poor customer service. Its likely that three are trying to build their customer base by undercutting the other operators, let’s see what happens tomorrow!

    O2 have changed their pricing and data plans. I think all the plans now cost 5€ more; and most of the plans only have 500MB data allowance rather than 2GB.
