3 has declared itself happy to connect customers who had previously experienced difficulties acquiring a fixed line contract to its mobile broadband service.
Speaking to technology news provider the Inquirer, 3 said that for a number of reasons, subscribers are often unable to put their name to a fixed-line contract, which is where mobile broadband comes in.
Whether shying away from the commitment of a long-term fixed-line deal, or being denied access for financial reasons, 3 is happy to welcome customers on board.
Tony Dennis of the Inquirer explained: "If you're a student or you're living in rented accommodation, then the prospect of an 18-month fixed line contract makes little sense and it's also expensive.
"Alternatively, your address might have a poor credit rating for any number of reasons."
While 3 confirmed: "We're pleased 3's prepay mobile broadband offering - which gives the same in-bundle pricing as our equivalent contract offering - is connecting such people."
Recent research from Analysys Mason highlighted Ireland as a mobile broadband hotspot, with 230,000 subscribers, including 90,000 belonging to 3.
