In April 2020, we launched our flexi data features, giving 48 customers the power to do more with data. Flexi data gives you the option to donate up to 5GB of data every 4 weeks to our charity partners, or alternatively, you can also choose to swap it, save it, share it... the choice is yours! To learn more about flexi data, see our flexi data guide.
Thanks to our amazing 48 customers, who have embraced Flexi data. In February 2022, we hit a huge milestone by raising over a whooping €100K for our charity partner, FoodCloud 👏👏
FoodCloud helps to tackle one of the major contributors to climate change – Food waste – which produces 8% of global greenhouse emissions, GHGs. They connect food suppliers who often have a surplus of goods with local causes who often have too little, so that unsold food can be passed on.
To find out more on FoodCloud, click here.
For every GB you give, FoodCloud can rescue 1 meal, saving 1.5 kilos of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.

Welcome our New Charity Partner!
With that being said, we challenged ourselves to do more and have since welcomed a new charity partner to the 48 Team, spunout.
spunout is Ireland’s youth information website, created for young people, by young people. They provide easy access to relevant, reliable and non-judgemental information. Find out more about spunout, here.
For every GB you give, spunout can support the information needs of one young person on topics including mental health, relationships, and employment.
This means you now have the option to donate up to 5GB to either partner from your 4 week plan allowance.

You’ll need to have an active plan, and then you can donate, save or carryover up to 5GB once every 4 weeks. To know more about all our Flexi data feature, see our guide here.
