Amaysim today launched new plans and pricing as it moves to use Optus’ 4G network, including its recent 700Mhz 4G Plus additions.
It seems that the “Unlimited” parts of the new plan names refers to text messages, as each plan has different limits on data and voice calls. Data inclusion is quite generous compared to other prepaid and even on-contract plans offered by their competitors, something we’ve been wanting to see for a while on 4G.
- UNLIMITED 6GB has 6GB of data, unlimited standard talk and text in Australia. It’s $54.90 per month.
- UNLIMITED 4GB has 4GB of data, unlimited standard talk and text in Australia and is $44.90 per month.
- UNLIMITED TEXT 1.5GB includes – you guessed it – 1.5GB of data and unlimited standard text. It gets you 500 minutes of standard voice calls (but unlimited Amaysim-to-Amaysim calls) for $29.90 a month.
If you’re on Amaysim’s existing Unlimited plan you don’t have to change anything, but it looks like you’ll remain on 3G unless you move to one of the new plans. Amaysim’s other top-ups, As You Go and Flexi, will become 4G-enabled and differ slightly on call and text rates.

There’s also some changes coming to data packs, with a 1GB data pack coming for $9.90 with 30 days expiry no matter when in the month it’s applied and a 300MB pack on its way for $4.90. It seems those changes aren’t quite ready to roll yet, with the 1GB add-on due to be available in the coming month and the 300MB add-on “soon”.
