ALDIMobile goes to war with new jumbo data offerings

There's a prepaid data war brewing, and we're all winning.

Ever since most (but not quite all) Australian mobile plans switched to offering unlimited standard national calls and texts, pricing and data have become the comparative battlefields, especially in the prepaid space. Last week, Kogan Mobile aggressively increased its data offerings across its 30-, 60- and 365-day plans, and overnight Vaya announced boosts to its month-to-month and 6-month plans.

ALDIMobile is the latest prepaid MVNO to get in on the data-boosting action, announcing new plans coming into effect from 13 September that top out at an impressive 16GB for $55 for its new "Jumbo" plan. There are also data boosts for the existing L and XL plans, up to 8GB and 12GB at the same price points as previously advertised.

While the lower tier S, M and L plans don't get a data boost, they (along with all the rest of ALDIMobile's prepaid plans) now get data rollover, allowing you to roll over any unused data as long as you recharge at the same or higher tier within your recharge period. Rollover is available only once per recharge, with any unused data then expiring after 30 days.

Here's how the new plans compare to the previous offerings for data inclusions:

Plan Name Recharge Old data inclusion New data inclusion
S $15 500MB 500MB
M $20 1.5GB 1.5GB
L $25 3GB 3GB
XL $35 7GB 8GB
XXL $45 9GB 12GB
Jumbo $55 N/A 16GB
