Telecommunications company eir has launched a wide range of new mobile and bundle offers that for the first time include free EU roaming and an additional 1GB EU data each month, now as standard.

Customers who avail of these new plans can now use their call and text allowances anywhere in the EU plus they will get an additional 1GB EU roaming data for free, each month.

Up to 40,000 existing eir mobile customers who signed up to eir Mobile will also have the new benefit applied to their accounts before the end of April 2016.

For new customers, free EU roaming is now available across a range of eir mobile plans, beginning at just €20 per month.

Maeve O’Malley, director of Mobile at eir commented: “Our customers love value, have a big appetite for data and don’t want to worry about unplanned post-holiday phone bills. So ahead of the holiday season we wanted to give them something that would make their European trips even more enjoyable, irrespective of where they are or what they are doing.”

She continued: “We are confident our new plans – which are extremely well priced – will appeal to a wide range of customers, both existing and new.”
