Analysis: The Option
Our overall best value option is Jeenee’s Pennywise $18 Plan. Powered by the Optus 4G network, the plan offers an extremely generous 300 minutes of calls, unlimited text, and the highest standard data allowance (1.8GB) of all the plans that we’ve analysed.
Vaya’s Power Plan 18 probably offers the most calls out of all our options – with $650 worth of credit, you could make 558 minutes of calls (at two minutes each) . The plan also offers unlimited national text, so you don’t have to worry about text eating up your credit.
Several of our options offer unlimited texts – including Vaya, Telechoice, Boost, while Aldi offers an almost unlimited 50,000 texts.
Jeenee’s Pennywise $18 Plan offer’s the most standard data out of all the plans. However, Boost offers a 500MB per weekend bonus in addition to a standard 1GB data allowance. If you use your data on the weekend, this could mean you could use up to 3GB data a month.
