|Prepaid Mobile Review – JB Hifi Prepaid Mobile (May 2013)
|Mobile phone sales must be pretty big at JB Hifi, certainly retail traffic is. I say this because prepaid mobile phone and prepaid mobile plans go and in hand. JB Hifi must see this as a a great opportunity to lock in some additional revenue with every phone sale they make. The reality is that they wouldn’t make much on a $50 prepaid mobile phone. But ongoing recharges on a competitive prepaid mobile offer provides an ongoing revenue stream.This is a good offer. Built off the Telstra network, JB Hifi is not an MVNO but a prepaid mobile offer. Call rates are 12c/min and no flagfall applies. Txt is 12c and credit expiry increases the higher you recharge. $20 gives you 30 days, $30 offers 60 days, $50 is 90 days and $100 offers 180 days. With these great rates and expiry you also get credit equal to the amount you have recharged plus data. Starting at 50MB on a $20 recharge and reaching 500MB when you recharge for $100.A 2 minute call will cost you just 24c and excess data is charged at just 50c/MB (not the most competitive). Whilst this plan seems to be based on the Telstra Simplicity plan, it is actually more competitive. Simplicity is 15c min, no flagfall, 12c Txt and same credit expiry however no data is on offer. All support for this service is managed via Telstra and online purchases are directed to the Telstra website.|
