Sim Only Mobile Review – SlimTel BYO Mobile Plans (December 2015)
SlimTel is another of the original BYO mobile plans that was launched as a no contract, month to month arrangement. They have over the past few months revamped their product range and now feature 6 mobile plans. The first three are at the very cheap end. VIP $0 Plan gives you call rates of 11c to Vodafone and 17c to others (charged per second). There is no call credit with this plan and the minimum spend is $0 each month. Data charges are 25.3c/MB. The second plan is the Size Zero plan and is even cheaper with 14c/min calls and no flagfall. Data is a 5c/MB. Once again you pay no monthly minimum and you receive no call credit, just pay for what you spend. The final of the cheaper plans is the $9.90 Global plan. You receive $9.90 in call credit and call rates for this plan are 19c/30s. SlimTel claims that the 19c/30s call rate applies to most international calls as well. Also note that this plan gives you 20c calls to SlimTel phones for 5 mins. The second category of Slimtel plans cater for the heavier mobile user. The $49 and $79 Capsgive you $250 and $520 in calls respectively. Call rates are 35c/30s or a 2 minute call is $1.65 each. The $250 will buy you 151 calls and the $520, 315 calls. A 50% discount applies to all calls once your call allowance has been used up. The final and newest of the premium plans is the unlimited offer. $39.90 buys you unlimited local fixed line and mobile calls anywhere in Australia but no data, just a low data rate of5c/MB. At the cheaper end, there are some reasonable options worth considering. The $49 and $79 Caps are pricey for what they offer. See Amaysim for better value.
