Sim Only Mobile Review – TPG Mobile Plans (July 2016)
TPG have just launched their new range of 4G plans using the Vodafone 4G network starting at $19.99/month and offering $400 in calls, unlimited TPG calls and 1.3GB. This new range supersedes the old Optus 4G plans and is now offered via the Vodafone 4G network.
Call rates for this plan is 99c/min plus a 40c flagfall ($2.38 per 2 min call). Excess data is $10/GB with increments per KB.
Step up from the T4G I offer to the T4G II plan and access unlimited local calls, unlimited TXT/MMS and 2GB of Vodafone 4G data. This plan comes in at $29.99 with a 30 day expiry.
The final plan goes straight for the heavy data user with a whopping 5GB of 4G speed data. T4GIII gives you unlimited local calls and TXT/MMS, unlimited TPG calls and 5GB of data. The cost of this plan is $39.99 with a 30 day expiry.
When you consider that you can access 4G speeds in metro areas, 1.3GB of data for under $20/mth you are looking at a pretty good deal.
A key change between these and the previous plans is that you no longer need to pay TPG a deposit and the sim card is $10 not $20. Additionally all plans are prepaid, so you need to prepay in advance for your use. Credit lasts for the month ahead (be that 30, or 31 days). If you run out of standard call credit (applies mainly for the $19.99 plan), you need to wait till the following month to reload. You can buy additional credit for additional services which I expect means additional data, international calls and call types not included in your standard credit. Just to clarify, this plan range has no bill, it is prepaid.
“All TPG services are prepaid. You must pay the monthly recurring charges in advance. In addition, you have the option to make additional prepayment for usage that is not within the included value (if any) for the plan that you have acquired. If there is insufficient funds in your prepaid balance, you will not be able to make any usage that is not part of your included value. Prepayments can be made during registration or after activation via the My Account section of the TPG website. If you choose to make additional prepayment, the amount will be debited from your nominated bank account or credit card. We will send you messages about your usage during the month. If you do not use the prepayment, it will be forfeited to us when you cancel the service. You agree that no bill will be provided for this service and that direct debiting of your account or charge to your credit card may occur notwithstanding that no bill is provided and that it may occur even though you may not have had the opportunity to check charges at least 10 working days before the debit.”
