It looks like today is new plan announcement day, with Vaya announcing changes to many of its Power and Unlimited plans with either price reductions or more inclusions.
Power Plans are best for data-heavy users with $650 of talk but more data, while the Unlimited plans feature unlimited standard calls in exchange for a little less data. Both sets of plans feature unlimited standard texts with 40c/75c international SMS/MMS.
Vaya’s basic and most popular Power Plan – Power 18 ($18/month) – remains unchanged with unlimited standard texts, $650 of calls and 1.5GB of data. Moving up, Power Plan 22 ($22/month) goes up to 2GB of data and Power Plan 28 ($28/month) goes up to 3GB of data.
The Unlimited plans have a new entry level at Unlimited 24 ($24/month, unlimited standard talk/text, 1.5GB data), moving up to 2.5GB on Unlimited 28 ($28/month). A new Unlimited 34 ($34/month) plan takes the place of the old Unlimited 44 plan and offers 4GB of data.
Excess data is charged at $10/GB on any of the Power or Unlimited plans (which does make the removal of the Unlimited 44 plan a shame), and you’ll probably want to check Vaya’s international call rates if you’re making a lot of overseas calls.
Vaya’s plans are charged monthly, and the company uses Optus’ 3G and 4G network. The company is also currently waiving its $10 fees for SIM cards and express delivery.
