Amaysim is a pretty decent carrier if you’re after some good value 3G plans, but as of the 1st of September they’re about to get a little more expensive, with the MVNO today announcing that as of September 1st, they will be making some changes.
To start with, the price of the UNLIMITED plan will increase by $5 from $39.90 to $44.90 per month, this includes an extra 1GB of data to use, but that’s because they have also announced they will be dropping their free social media sharing. The dropping of free social media access is due to the increased cost of supplying the access, which has increased drastically since they introduced it in 2010. Customers now view more video through social sites and are using social media more on their smartphones than on laptop or desktop PC’s.
It’s also going to remain a 3G service, for now. Amaysim is looking at 4G, but in their words : ‘it has to be at the right price with the right plan to suit people who want good value’. So 3G it is, but you should still be able to get a decent service out of it.
The changes come into effect on the 1st of September, so if you’re not happy with the changes you have until then to look around for a new plan.
