Sim Only Mobile Review – Ello Sim Only Mobile Plans (March 2015)
Ello Mobile has only just launched its services which include fixed line broadband, sim only mobile and a range of soon to be released entertainment packages. Ello Mobile uses the Optus 4G network and has 3 sim only month to month plans on sale at the moment.
The Ello Buck plans begin at $29/mth and offer 300 minutes of calls, 3000 messages including both TXT/MMS plus 500MB data. The next Buck plan comes in at $39/mth and offers double the call value and double the data. The final Buck plan comes in at $60/mth with 3000 minutes, 3000 messages and 2GB.
How do these plans compare? They actually don’t compare very well at any level. Exetel as an example which offers access to the same network offers similar packages for considerably less. It offers the Buck 29 package for $20/mth, the Buck 39 package for $30/mth and the Buck 60 for $50/mth. In fact the Exetel range gives you unlimited messaging and lower excess call costs. At the top end, it offers 3GB data along with unlimited calls.
Ello has some work to do in order to ensure this plan range can compete.
