    Default Eircom E Mobile Fair Usage Policy

    I just logged on to emobile.ie as I am interested in their new mobile prepay plan as I heard it advertised on national radio. Its 10 per week for 'unlimited' calls and texts to any network. But I feel that the 'fair usage' limits are too low.
    200 minutes per week and 200 texts per week. Maybe other posters will feel that I am being unreasonable? - but I just think 29 minutes per day and 29 messages per day is quite a low limit and it should really not advertised as 'unlimited'

    I seem to be the only person left in the world that has a problem with the usage of the word "unlimited" in the context of mobile phone advertising.

    I know it is marketing, and thus not subject to any rules, but I find it thoroughly dishonest, and would suggest to me a company that uses it to describe a limited product, only has a passing acquaintance with integrity and honesty.

    I agree that the term 'unlimited' is being totally abused. A complaint to the ASA would probably be appropriate. That being said the 'fair usage' allowance equates to circa 900 minutes and 900 texts per month on a billpay package. Would you get that for circa €45 in a bill pay package?

    What kind of coverage does emobile have? If they're using the Eircom line network for transmisison, it may be as good as the best. Or is it?

    No Doubt Gijoe it is a great offer. I dont think it can be beaten. I just dont like the dishonest way in which it is being marketed.

    take a look at this link: eMobile Bill Pay and Pre Pay Plans - Great Offers - Great Plans

    They actually state 'All the calls and texts you need to any network'.
    That is a blatant lie.

    e-mobile is using the exact same infrastructure as Meteor. Both brands are owned by eircom.

    Vodafone for 20 euro per month give unlimited Vodafone to vodafone and 20 euro worth of calls to other networks.

    This is probably the best deal as Vodafone has the best coverage nationally and has the most users on it Network, meaning higher chance of ringing an 087 number for free on this package
