Eir mobile customers can now avail of no limits data which should be very handy

Eir customers won't face extra charges or be cut off from the service if they exceed their data usage.

Eir mobile customers will instantly be able to enjoy ‘No Limits Data,' benefiting from uncapped data usage for prepay, bill and small business plans.

Approximately 500,000 Eir mobile customers will be able to avail of uncapped data usage when they purchase their next credit. For bill paying customers, the offer is immediately available.

Unlike other mobile networks, if an Eir customer reaches 80GB of data usage, which is ten times more than the average customer’s monthly usage, they won't face extra charges or be cut off from the service.

Instead, their speeds will be slowed until their next payment cycle. This will apply to less than 1% of customers, the company said.

The development is part of Eir’s €150m mobile network upgrade.

Eir have said that this new plan is an important step in the company’s preparation for the delivery of 5G services in the coming months.

Susan Brady, Managing Director eir Marketing, said: “Our customers want to be connected at all times and to make the best use of every minute, whether that’s catching up on work in the park or on the latest Netflix series on their commute.

"Eir mobile customers can now stream, download, chat and browse without the worry of running up large bills. No Limits Data is a game-changer for mobile customers in Ireland and an important development as we prepare to deliver 5G in the coming months."

Eir has plans to launch its 5G service in the autumn.
