Affordable 4G: plans with speed and savings

Summary: You might be surprised to learn that fast 4G mobile speeds don't come with a premium price-tag. Here are some of the best and cheapest 4G SIM-only plans in Australia.

By at WhistleOut |

4G mobile broadband speeds are the latest and greatest in internet connectivity for mobile phones, but you might be surprised to learn that it won’t cost you extra to take advantage of the huge speed boost. In fact, you might even save some money switching to one of these plans.

Jeenee Mobile

Network: Optus 4G

Jeenee is one of the new kids on the block, but is a network with a difference. Not only does it offer fast 4G service at affordable prices, but it is actually a not-for-profit organisation tasked with providing important mobile phone services to people living with a disability.

Every new customer who signs up with Jeenee Mobile automatically contributes towards providing a free phone and service for someone with a disability who needs it. Just 5 people signing up to Jeenee’s $35 Plan in a month is enough to donate a free service.

Optus

Network: Optus 4G

It used to be that you had to look to the smaller network brands to find high-value 4G offerings, but not so anymore. Following a recent change in price, Optus now has one of the most competitive SIM-only plans in the country, with unlimited calls and messages plus 2GB of data at 4G speeds for $45.

You can also choose to share your data with multiple devices, like a tablet or USB modem along with your phone. It costs just $5 to connect each new device to your phone plan.

Vaya

Network: Optus 4G

With some of the lowest prices in Australia, Vaya is a name you are likely to be hearing more often. The telco’s $18 Power Plan is a favourite among WhistleOut plan searches, but it’s $29 is also a winner.

For less than $30 per month, Vaya gives you $650 worth of calls (roughly 270 2-minute calls), unlimited SMS and 2.5GB data. That’s a pretty difficult offer to beat.

Vodafone

Network: Vodafone 4G

Vodafone offer some of the cheapest options for phones on plans, but if you already have a phone, it also offers great SIM-only deals as well.

For $50 per month, Vodafone will give you unlimited calls, messages and 1.5GB data (currently 3GB with its current double data offer), plus you get access to its Red Roaming overseas rates, too. This is a great option for travellers on a budget as they plan for a big trip abroad.
