I couldn't be at all certain about this but I had heard that 3 Ireland have
3Ireland.ie: not routable from outside
3Internet: routable from outside
As far as I understood it, the former is NATted so you /may/ see an RFC1918
IP address if you're on that. That said, I think I've heard the former
referred to as "legacy" so it may not be around indefinitely.
At a very wild guess, lots of modern users will need to be routable for
"push" type services (Exchange?) to send data to the phone.

Perhaps a similar experiment could be done if someone's interested on the 3
