Aww! For a moment I got excited...
I've a place in rural Galway with no broadband (in fact, we don't have a
phone line there, just use mobiles). I was thinking about how to get
connectivity without having to pay a monthly subscription and this looked
like just the thing. Until I copped on that the rates are:
1 day EUR 5
7 day EUR 10
30 days EUR 25
Now, if I could use the 30 day version on any 30 days rather than 30
consecutive days, that would be grand. However, I guess it doesn't work
that way does it?
There doesn't appear to be a fon spot anywhere near. Closest is Roscommon
or Athlone (20 mins drive away).
Any other possibilities for occasional internet access with only mobile
