3, Ireland’s largest high speed network, has today detailed results of a recent survey which highlights how Irish people love to talk and text on their mobiles and who are Ireland’s most active 3Pay mobile customers.

With the average 3Pay customer spending between 80 and 90 minutes talking on the mobile per month and the rest of the time sending over 130 text messages, 3 could not have picked a better time to launch its new 3Pay offer, with consumers able to talk to anyone, any network for free all weekend, and text anyone for free anytime, with just a €20 per month top-up.

Today’s survey detailing the spending patterns of 3’s pre-pay customers over a thirty day period reinforces the old saying of different strokes for different folks, with only Offaly and Sligo featuring in both the top five of the text and chat categories.

The survey results revealed that the lovely people of Sligo prefer to text than call, coming in third in the Country’s top five texters and fifth overall in the caller results. Limerick pipped Dublin to the post for the Country’s top 3Pay callers and Kilkenny led the texting results. Waterford and Clare came bottom propping up the rankings for calls and texts respectively.

Commenting on the survey findings, Elaine Carey, Sales and Marketing Director at 3, said, “Today’s survey results confirm what we at 3 have long believed, Ireland is a nation of chatterboxes! Whether it’s by call or text, it varies from county to county, highlighting why 3 is providing customers with the best value prepay offer on the market.”

The new 3Pay offer is available right across the country from today enabling customers who top-up just €20 per month to benefit from:

  • Free weekend voice calls to any network (unlimited)
  • Free anytime texts to any network (unlimited)
  • Unlimited data access (mobile surfing) for just €5
