Just wondering can I use my phone to go on the internet while I'm abroad? I can't find an option to buy data for roaming, I've bought calls and texts already.

Thanks

Unfortunately not as 48 don't support data while roaming abroad so you have to use wifi where available.

 

Hope this helps.

I'm going to Fermanagh for a month, does this area count as roaming as it is out of the republic of Ireland?

Unless you can pick up the 48/Three Ireland network there then you will be roaming abroad (on an NI/UK network) and data will not work.

 

Hope this helps.

You mean data while roaming outside the Republic of Ireland?

You can't on 48 other than maybe near the NI border as I've already said.

On 48 you'll only be able to use internet and connected apps while on wifi where available.

 

Hope this helps.
