      I used 4G for 2 days streaming. I was hungover and thought I was connected to my parents network (which was down). 18 gigs used in 2 days.

    Leave a town or city and it gets super patchy. This place is tiny. It should be 4ged up the hoop. Idiotic lack of foresight

    I have given up on fiber broadband and even quality 3G, never mind “4G”.

    Ireland is a hole.

    Unless you live in certain parts, of certain cites, it’s beyond depressing.

          It is a hole. I agree. Smart economy this and technology that. Why bother if you can’t even get the infrastructure right.

      yes, obviously rural/sparsely populated areas have poor coverage as that’s the way the technology works, and it’s hugely inefficient to put the technology and equipment in areas without decent population density.

    I don’t even know what 3G is. I just turn my phone on and it does stuff and I can watch videos on youtube on the toilet.

    Coverage by area or by population%? the former more understandable, why would you put up expensive masts for a few jon the farmers, when they would probably fight you every step of the way and only use it for toilet wank while the fat wife is a asleep

      That’s the attitude.

      Who needs working map apps, or video calls, or rock solid connections outside of towns or cities?

      You are right.

      People rarely move from town to town or city to city in their cars or buses or trains.

      Much savages on a tiny island.

      Living in an Irish “city” does not make you cosmopolitan, in any way.

        the majority of the country live in towns or cities.
        if you want decent internet services outside them then you’ll have to pay handsomely for them as it doesn’t make economic sense to offer them.

    I had a fabulous 4G signal up the side of a hill in Connemara last week, far better than the patchy at best signal I get in work in Dublin city centre or at home in Dublin 9.

    Ireland’s the Ryanair of countries. We have everything you need, it’s just overpriced, patchy and generally yellow-pack versions of same.
