Prepaid Mobile Review – Dodo Prepaid Mobile (April 2014)
Dodo Prepaid Mobile has a reputation for competitive offers when it comes to mobile phone plans and broadband access. Dodo originally launched their prepaid mobile range with both the Pay As You Go and the Dodo Prepaid Mobile Unlimited plan (cancelled from 30/8/13). Pay As You Go offers very cheap call rates at just 11c/min (charged per min) with no flagfall and 11c Txt anywhere in Australia. This is pretty good value. Better still is that the expiry begins with 60 days even with a $10 recharge and increases to 365 days on a $100 recharge. There is no data included with this plan (which is a little unfortunate) but data is charged at 5c/MB which is pretty standard for many prepaid mobile providers today. A 2 minute call will cost you just 22c, so a $10 recharge voucher should theoretically offer 45 calls. Please note that the Unlimited offer for $39.90 and 5GB data is no longer being offered.
Close to two years following the launch of these plans, Dodo Prepaid Mobile PAYG offer remains one of the cheapest around. A replacement for the Unlimited offer still remains absent and with greater demand for value based plans particularly with a data offer, Dodo has fallen a little behind the mark with their prepaid mobile offer. I suspect some of this is due to the change in ownership and the focus of the new owners on margins and closing down plans that make little or no money.
