    ALDImobile best mobile phone prepaid plans in Australia (I think so)

    I stupidly assumed that ALDImobile was on the Optus network but I was very wrong, they use the Telstra 3/2G network for the best mobile reception you can get.

    So, what do you get? 12c texts and 12c/minute calls with no flagfall and 365 days until the credit expires.

    If you go for the awesome $35 30day prepaid plan(?) you get 5GB data, unlimited talk and text........On the Telstra network, THAT IS AWESOME!

    Data prepaid is 2GB for $15 and 30 days to use it, not an amazing deal but still OK


    https://www.aldimobile.com.au/plans

    Why ALDImobile?




    12c per minute standard national calls
    12c per standard national TXT
    No flagfall



    Only $35 gives 30 days access
    Includes unlimited standard national calls, TXT and MMS
    Also includes a huge 5GB of data


    Recharge with either $15 or $30 and get 365 days to use your credit!
    Your prepaid credit lasts longer with ALDImobile

    I'll be moving from Vodafone to this, Vodafone service is terrible!

    The report on News.com.au website reads oddly

    Quote:
    "the company lost its Telstra connection when its provider went into administration."

    Guess it makes sense, first read I thought it was saying Telstra connection was lost due to Telstra going into administration, I gather they mean once Kogan Mobile went into administration the company list it's Telstra connection.

    This is a good bit at the end of that News.com.au article:

    10 LOW-COST AUSTRALIAN PHONE CARRIERS
    - Virgin Mobile
    - Amaysim
    - Boost Mobile
    - Dodo
    - Think Mobile
    - Fone Zone
    - Just Mobile
    - Woolworths Mobile
    - TPG Mobile
    - iiNet Mobile

    CHECK THESE AREAS BEFORE CHOOSING A LOW-COST PHONE CARRIER
    - Unlimited plans that aren't unlimited
    - Lower speeds than traditional carriers (3G rather than 4G)
    - Restrictive 'Acceptable Use' policies
    - Prepaid plans that change with little notice
    - More excluded calls and message types
    - Fewer usage alerts
    - Ensure you'll receive an itemised bill

    Haha their ads are pretty odd-







    Also I did read this-

    What does 'ALDImobile uses part of Telstra's 3G mobile network' mean?

    When we set up ALDImobile, our intention was to offer you the best mobile service with low call rates. Basically a Rolls Royce without the bells and whistles.
    With ALDImobile using parts of the Telstra 3G mobile network, we were able to make smart choices about providing you the most relevant services while containing cost for you. We are able to provide you with a fast and reliable voice and data network without increasing your call rates due to unnecessary technologies.
    As a result, we are not offering coverage in some areas such as mining pits and other far away places. We are also currently not offering 'long term evolution' (LTE) technologies.
    By choosing ALDImobile, you don't need to pay for these unnecessary bells and whistles. You are able to enjoy remarkably low rates on a fast and reliable network which suits your needs.
    Our services run where Telstra 2G and 3G networks have coverage. The ALDImobile mobile product provides a 3G coverage footprint of 97% of the Australian population covering more than 960,000 square kilometres. Outside the 3G coverage footprint, customers will revert to 2G coverage and speeds. The combined 2G and 3G footprint covers 98.5% of the Australian population. You can use check our the coverage checker maps to view coverage in your area by clicking here.

    3G isn't exactly slow, it's faster than many ADSL connections in Australia:

    Telstra's fastest available 3G speeds that include 1.1 – 20Mbps in the download and 550kbps – 3Mbps in the upload across 80 per cent of the population. In our remaining coverage areas speeds are less.

    --
    My first ADSL connection was only 1.5Mbps, and I had to pay something like $150/month, could have got 512kbps for $75, but I was working with a lot of film and wanted the speed.

    I now have something like 56Mbps. Would have loved Labors 1000Mbps, 666 times faster than what I got back in 2000, Liberals will be slower than 4G and isn't worth rolling out at all!

    Alrighty I went without a phone for two months because I could and it was awesome, but I am now on ALDImobile and it is so cheap and their online usage section is so easy to understand, ALDI rocks!

    Oh you don't have to fill anything out in store either which was cool, no ID needed, nothing, just give 'em ya fiver and off ya toddle.

    I'm going to grab one for my laptop as it has a Sim card slot that I've never used and $15 for 2GB is pretty good.
