48months is an Irish online mobile phone company offering some great deals on calls texs and data
They are owned by Three – who bought O2 last year. They also use the Three network – so coverage should be the same quality as them.
Customers of 48 Months decide what type of call and text package they need – and then pre-pay a monthly “membership” fee. You don’t have to pay the fee every month – you can have periods where you don’t pay. You don’t have any credit to use up or run out – you just get what you sign up for – but when you can get unlimited calls and texts to any mobile for €20 – that is going to be plenty.
48Months have 4 different bundles or types of membership:
The Don : €20 Monthly gets you 1000 mins of calls to any mobile network plus unlimited texts to any mobile network plus 8GB internet + 60 landline minutes.
The Guido for €10 Monthly you get 300 mins to any mobile network , unlimited texts to any mobile network and 1GB internet + 60 landline minutes.

The Duke is also €15 Monthly and gets you 500 mins to any mobile network, unlimited texts to any mobile network 1GB internet + 20 landline minutes.
They don’t sell phones or long contracts – you just register onlie for a FREE SIM and then choose the deal you want.
Note: The 48months service is aimed at 18 to 22 year olds – but there are no formal checks made on age.
With 48Months you can keep your old number – but you need to have an unlocked phone. This is normally straightforward if you have been with your old provider for a while.
You can pay for the monthly membership online or buy a top-up voucher in thousands of shops across Ireland associated with Payzone and also Omnivend vending machines.
As with all the other mobile providers – the “inclusive” calls do not include calls to directory enquiries, international numbers, premium rate numbers or while roaming. There are some landline calls included with most of the bundles.
