Unlimited mobile plans in either prepaid or BYO monthly mobile form have been ultra popular over the past few years. In-fact every prepaid mobile provider has one or atleast has tried offering one at some stage.
In the main, these unlimited prepaid mobile offers will give you unlimited local calls to fixed lines, unlimited calls to all mobile numbers, unlimited text and a reasonable data allowance.
Where they differ however is how they charge or don’t for those irregular or premium activities such as calling 1300, 1800 numbers, calling overseas or even sending MMS, which is basically sending pictures from your phone. – See more
It’s true prepaid data has taken a serious hit over the past 18 months and the only groups to go against this trend have either closed down or been whipped back into shape.
However there are ways to up your prepaid data and it’s through the purchase of a prepaid data addon. Almost all prepaid plans offer them but which is the best value prepaid data add-on? – See more
Today we are looking at the best prepaid 4G options for under $30. The key criteria include 4G, prepaid with a monthly recharge of around $30. The number of prepaid providers offering 4G network access increased late May with the launch of 4G at Yatango Mobile, they now join Telstra, Vodafone, Optus and Virgin who also offer 4G access.
If you are just starting out with 4G and don’t know how much you will need or are likely to spend, starting low and sticking with prepaid is a great way to go. Not only will you prevent yourself from overspending, but you can also make a switch away with minimal hassle. – See more
About a month ago, I shared an article that had been circulating about the Telstra Wholesale network and its ambition to remove the caps that it had placed on data download speeds (currently at 7.2Mbps). At the time of sharing the article, I had also made comment that one real winner in removing caps and making the Telstra wholesale network accessible to more MVNOs was Lyca Mobile.
Best Telstra 3G Network PlansLyca Mobile to me seems like a poorer cousin to the likes of Lebara Mobile and Hello Mobile. Whilst its international rates are the cheapest going around, its value when it comes to internet was relying upon a super slow 2G network albeit the Telstra 2G network.
This week, I discovered that Lyca Mobile have finally made the move to Telstra 3G, although looking at what is promoted on their website you wouldn’t really notice that this is so. Lots of promotions and new plans are featured but there is no news covering the fact that they now have a proper internet offer. – See more
Amaysim recently clocked 600,000 customers using its prepaid mobile services, a great milestone for a company that is yet to mark 5 years in operation. Their CEO noted the growing trend by carriers to no longer subsidies handset pricing via a contract mobile plan, and that more and more customers are looking at better value with their next mobile and mobile plan purchase, leading to a greater demand for prepaid and BYO mobile plans.
Over the past 2 years Virgin Mobile has shifted its mobile focus away from prepaid mobile plans towards its BYO range, giving customers a $10/mth saving on its plans if they bring their own phone. As well as the discount they also offer no contract with these plans, so customers have the freedom to leave should they want/need to. – See more
