Three mobile data in Ireland


I’m in Co Kerry, Ireland for the bank holiday weekend, visiting the girl’s family. Good food, good drink and good company – all is well. Except that Three’s data here is abysmal.

The images at the top of this post are the maximum and minimum speeds I’ve achieved over a 3.5G connection… and have validated with multiple other tests. Noting close to the 3.6Mbs that Three say can be achieved. If I weren’t roaming for free I certainy wouldn’t pay for this…!

It seems I’m not alone. How do the Irish mobile firms cope? There’s quite a cluster in Cork.
