As of September of this year, Meteor customers will officially become known as Eir mobile customers.

Meteor, which was acquired by Eir 12 years ago, serves approximately 750,000 mobiles users across the country.

Aware that the announcement may spark concern among its thousands of users, Richard Moat, CEO of Eir, insists that the rebrand will have no effect on contracts or mobile plans.

"This decision reflects the confidence we have in the eir brand. The transition will be seamless, and Meteor customers will continue using their mobiles exactly as before," he said in light of the announcement.

"Meteor customers may not have realised that they are part of a much bigger network, and they should be reassured that they can now take full advantage of all of the possibilities that come from being an eir customer."

“By focusing on a single mobile brand and reducing the duplication of supporting two brands, we can offer better value,” he added.

Meteor customers will receive a DM or text message confirming the transition, with further information provided on meteor.ie and eir.ie.



We all have a love/hate relationship with our mobile network, but news that has just surfaced might permanently switch you over to the hate side.

Four of Ireland's largest telecommunications businesses were served enforcement actions for breaking consumer law last year.

According to a new Watchdog report, the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) said that Vodafone, Meteor, Three and UPC failed to adequately notify consumers of their rights regarding cancelling contracts they entered into online or over the phone.

The network companies are also said to have misled customers about their legal rights to cancel distance contracts.

A total of 62 enforcements were served under these breaches to the traders last year.

So, it might be worthwhile checking out your contract now ladies. 


We can’t deny it, but we do love a good freebie from time to time. There’s nothing better than being rewarded for our loyal customer service than getting an extra surprise after parting with our hard earned cash.

Well, it seems like the people at Meteor have read our minds because they’re launching their new Extras programme. The network wants to say thank you to their customers by offering them a little something extra.

The new loyalty programme, launched by the aptly titled ‘World’s Greatest Extra’ Jesse Heiman is designed to give Meteor customers some special gifts to say thank you.

Director of Meteor Maeve O’Malley said about the programme:

“We designed Extras with our customers in mind, so you can do the things you love for less – eat out, go out and catch a movie every month. Meteor has had incredible success over the years and there’s a real affection for us as an Irish brand, and Extras is our way of giving something back.”

Customers across the country will be able to avail of free cinema tickets every month in over 35 cinemas. You can also get 2 for 1 dining experiences in a range of restaraunts including Captain America’s and Milano.

2 for 1 Day Out offers are also available for various spots around the country including Thomond Park Stadium and Eagles Flying (Sligo).

So why choose Jesse to launch the programme?

Jesse earned his title after appearing in over 75 films. You may not recognise his name though, because rather than take centre stage, he’s become known as the industry’s most well-known extra.

He’s even managed to befriend A-Listers like Tom Hanks and Hilary Duff, without even having to learn any lines! Viewed by over one billion people, the 2013 Superbowl ad featuring Jesse and Bar Rafaeli getting up close and personal made sure he became something of a pop culture phenomenon.
