Those of you who are regular readers know that we don’t tend to focus on Telco offers all that often here at Ausdroid. In our reader survey, you told us that news and reviews were your favourite topics, and plan news / telco offerings were not a huge priority for you.
However, when I caught wind of this today, I thought I’d love to share it with you. We know you love a bargain, and this sounds (almost) too good to be true. For heavy users of data and calls on your Android devices, you’ll like this.
From today, Amaysim will be offering one of the best deals we’ve seen – and I’ve been watching phone plans for over ten years. At a press event this morning, Amaysim announced their new ‘cap-killer’ plan.
For $39.90 a month (with a minimum one month commitment), you’ll get:
- Unlimited calls
- Unlimited voicemail
- Unlimited SMS and MMS
- 4 GB of data, with excess data charged at 5c per meg, or 1GB blocks for $9.90
Customers will receive SMS alerts at 75, 90 and 100% of their monthly usage to ensure that data usage isn’t gobbled up too quickly. Of course, everything has fine print these days, and these kind of calls are not included in the unlimited usage:
- 1300 and 1800 numbers
- Premium SMS
- Video calls and Satellite calls
- Call diversion
Amaysim uses the Optus network, which means (as we’ve found) your mileage may vary, however a large number of you use Optus for your carrier, so it can’t be all that bad. For this price, it certainly presents an appealing option. Are you tempted by options like these? Tell us in the comments.
