Aldi Mobile has had a makeover with a new look launching alongside some updated plans. While the company hasn’t quite lost the people-using-soft-drink-bottles-as-phones imagery, the new look seems to be a part of Aldi Mobile’s largest assault yet on the Australian pre-paid market, with television ads popping up promoting the service.

Some plans offer additional data alongside others offering greater combined call/SMS allowances. The new plans took effect on November 3.

Pay As You Go

Aldi has changed and simplified the options for ‘pay as you go’ plans, which are now $15 or $30.

Both options offer the same rates:

  • Calls at 12c per minute
  • SMS at 12c each
  • MMS at 35c each, and
  • Data at 5c per MB

You can also purchase data packs. $16.50 gets you 1.5GB, while $30 gets you 3GB. Data packs have a 30 day expiry.

Go recharges last 365 days but given the low included value it’ll probably be hard to make it that the distance, though your mileage may vary.

Value Packs

The Value Packs see a cheaper per-minute and per-SMS rate (each 10c), while the MMS rate drops to 30c. They expire in 30 days, and the additional data packs may only be added once during this time, and on M/L/XL plans you have to use 70% of your data before you can add it.

  S $10 M $20 L $30 XL $35
Aldi 2 Aldi Calls Free calls & SMS
Credit $10 $30 $65 $125
Data N/A 400MB 1.25GB 2GB
Additional Data 100MB = $5 300MB = $7 1GB = $10 1GB = $10

What do you think of the new plans? Will you stay with Aldi Mobile, or consider switching to them? Tell us in the comments.

In going to stick with my Vodafone Red plan where I get unlimited calls and texts and 3gb of data. Much better value than these.

These plans would makes sense for a minimal user. $20 gets you a few calls and a little bit of data.
But once you want a couple of gigs data, you are up at about $40, and you might as well stick with Boost.

Aldi, these plans are just too messy. You want to sell them to housewives at the checkout? Simplify it way down. None of this addon stuff, and just make phonecalls and SMS unlimited.
$40… everything you need.


Which network are they re-selling? Even if it’s Telstra, I won’t be switching. These plans are certainly not targeted at ‘power users’.
