amaysim cuts prices, adds international texts on UNLIMITED plans

5GB plan is now under $40 a month, and all plans have unlimited international text.

2 November 2015: amaysim has tweaked its prepaid plans range, cutting the price of its UNLIMITED 5GB plan and adding more data to the top-of-the-range UNLIMITED plan.

The UNLIMITED 5GB plan is now $39.90 a month, down from $44.90. The previous UNLIMITED 7GB plan has also gained an extra gigabyte and dropped in price. The UNLIMITED 8GB plan is $49.90 a month, down from $54.90.

amaysim has also made good on its recent promise to add unlimited international SMS and MMS to all its UNLIMITED plans. That option is now available on the 1GB, 2GB, 5GB and 8GB plans.

International calls are a little more complicated. Last month, amaysim added 100 minutes of calls to international numbers in selected countries to the 5GB and 7GB plans, but that's no longer the case.

If you're on the $39.90 plan, you now have unlimited international SMS and MMS, but no international calling minutes. You can pay an extra $5 a month for the UNLIMITED 5GB PLUS plan, which includes 300 minutes of calls to 32 selected countries. The UNLIMITED 8GB plan includes the same 300 international minutes deal (and doesn't charge extra for it).

If you're already on the 7GB plan, you'll be automatically be rolled onto the lower-priced option on the next recharge. If you're currently paying $44.90 for UNLIMITED 5GB, you'll be switched to 5GB PLUS. If you don't want the international calls, you can switch to the cheaper $39.90 option.

$49.90 for 8GB is one of the most competitive offers out there at the moment. Optus' own $50 a month SIM deal includes unlimited calls and texts in Australia, international texts and 300 minutes of international calls, but only has 5GB of data.

amaysim's services are offered on the Optus 4G network. Check out our detailed guide to the difference between 3G and 4G.
