Excellent article Sean, I noticed it was published a while ago. Eir is even worse, for example, Eir does not even have 3G coverage most of the way between Donegal and Ballybofey. Have to say that’s utterly ridiculous after spending that amount on the actual dongle and topping up loads during the first 8 months I had it your effectively penalising me as I haven’t used it in 6 months, glad I’m not with Meteor anymore, incredible. In this case, I suggest trying it forced in 3G mode. Despite sending them numerous screenshots including the above ping test, they insist that my connection is fine. My first thought was it might be similar to Imagine LTE with a fixed exterior antenna but you are probably right. Update 1st October

For example, from my testing along various points between Kilcar and Letterkenny, I was surprised at the different speeds I got between Three and Vodafone. This can also be useful to swap a SIM back and forth between a router and a phone that require difference size SIM cards.

If you moden split the SIM apart, these pieces snap together again. I have googled and cannot find anything about FMS. It also maintains a speed test history.

They also recently seem to be hitting hard with traffic prioritisation and throttling in recent weeks. According to Vodafoneonce the connection drops at the usage limit, the customer can call Vodafone to extend the limit.


Moved obsolete iD Mobile section and Eir day plan advice to Archive. I see you mention meteor has a 30 day gb option. The speed test on the right was Monday evening about 8: However, I also have been in an area where mobile handsets work fine the Three network with both 3G and 4G, yet broadband devices are unable to register with the network with a Three Mobile broadband SIM.

The only remaining options I can think of would be to either tether from your mobile if you have a large data plan or the following option involving a Tesco Mobile phone SIM placed in your tablet.

Vodafone Vodafone has by far the most widespread 4G coverage in Ireland and even has 3G in many areas not covered by any other network.

They operate out of the UK based on speaking with someone who had to contact their technical support. Do you have any advise about this and if TP links can be used with mobile broadband to extend coverage?
