About Us

Welcome to 48, Ireland's first online youth mobile network.

We're not for everybody

If you can remember watching Glenroe, we're not your kind of network. But there are other offers out there especially for you. Otherwise get started by ordering yourself a free SIM.

Why a youth network?

We know that funds might be tight. The bank of Mum and Dad has probably closed and you're paying for stuff for the first time. We also know that your phone is your lifeline. How else are you going to find out what everyone's up to and where they're going.

That's why we've designed 48 just for you. We will help you do more of the things you love i.e. talk, text, internet, without being worried about how much it will cost.

How can we do this?

We've kept things simple and kept our costs down. We've no 48 shops or expensive customer care call centres. But don't panic; we're using the Three network, so you'll get the exact same coverage and quality as their customers.

Who are we?

For those who are interested in where we have come from, we are independent but we are part of the overall Hutchison Whampoa Group.

48 is a trading name of Three Ireland Services (Hutchison) Limited which is registered in Ireland (company number 234895) with a registered office of 28/29 Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin 2.
