Looking for the best value on pre-pay? Look no further...

Here's a guide to the best offers available, without entering into a contract

Mobile networks are fighting for our business and are putting together some impressively competitive offers. It can be overwhelming to search through what every network has to offer, so here's a rundown of what the six main networks have to offer on prepay. 

Tesco are still bedding themselves down in the mobile network game, but are really making their mark. They currently offer customers 2G and 3G coverage.

"Our customers are now benefiting directly from the investment undertaken by Three to improve coverage, and data speeds nationwide for Tesco Mobile," they say. While there is no 4G on offer, at the moment, the pre-pay deals seem to provide good value for money. 

As we all know by now, Three and 02 merged not that long ago. Three are known for their "All You Can Eat" 4G data offers. They're currently working their way around the country to enhance their coverage quality. If you're a heavy data user, this may be the one for you! 

Vodafone are global leaders in the telecoms space. They've been around for quite some time and are a trusted brand. That being said, their bill pay offers are better value than their pre-pay. 

If you only use your phone for the odd call or text and have no interest in data, Eir is the way to go. They give customers weekly and monthly top up options, starting from as little as €5. 

iD is owned by Carphone Warehouse and lets you tailor your price plan, on bill pay and pre pay. There's some excellent value on offer here. 

Meteor give users a lot of data, for a little loot. They're definitely worth considering if data is what matters to you.
