amaysim broadband plans compared

amaysim has grown massively since it launched in 2010 and today provides mobile services to Australian households.

Is amaysim right for me?

  • What does amaysim offer? Alongside its SIM-only mobile plans, amaysim offers a range of mobile broadband services powered by the Optus 4G network. As of October 2018, amaysim no longer offers NBN services.
  • Product highlights: If you're looking for a mobile broadband plan capable of doubling as your home broadband service, amaysim's range of 100GB+ plans have a lot to offer.
  • Watch out for: amaysim's mobile broadband plans operate on a 28-day expiry instead of the typical 30-day expiry. While two days may not sound like much, it adds up over the long term, resulting in you paying for roughly one extra recharge every 12 months.

amayim's mobile broadband plans explained

If mobile broadband is what you need, amaysim offers plans using Optus’s 4G Plus network (which includes access to enhanced speed 4G areas, standard 4G and 3G in areas where no 4G service is available). You’ve got a choice between five simple plans, but be careful when comparing these because amaysim’s plans renew every 28 days, whereas many competitors offer plans aligned to calendar months.

It might not sound like a lot, but on 28-day plans, you effectively pay for an "extra month" each year.

How does amaysim compare?

  • Competitive pricing
  • Plenty of large caps for data-lovers
  • 28-day expiry ends up costing more in the long run

At a casual glance, amaysim’s mobile broadband plans stack up well against the competition, especially towards the higher end of the speed spectrum. Its lower-price plans are pretty standard across mobile providers, making it hard to stand out.

amaysim’s mobile broadband plans all feature no-lock-in contracts, but it's worth noting that, generally speaking, plans with a 12-month minimum term usually include a bit more data than the equivalent monthly plans. So, if you’re looking for a bit of a saving, the first thing to consider is whether an alternative provider has a 12-month plan with more data included for the same price.

Why should you consider amaysim?

In the eight years that amaysim has been operating in Australia, the company has gone from offering mobile plans on Optus’s network to delivering services to a combined 1.12 million subscribers, as well as branching out into home energy services.

amaysim’s pitch is a simple customer experience, and this holds true across the brand’s mobile services.

amaysim has built its brand on the simplicity of its plans, with no-lock-in contracts and affordable pricing. Although amaysim may not always be the cheapest offering, the combination of month-to-month billing and unlimited data as well as the brand's reputation for solid performance promises a level of simplicity in a service that can get very confusing.

Using Optus’s carrier network, amaysim’s offers mirror what Optus (and many Optus-based providers) are offering. There’s nothing unique in amaysim’s plans, but like many Optus-based providers, it provides some of the best value in the mobile broadband market.

      Hi Linda,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Generally, Once you’ve applied for your new NBN plan, your ISP will usually arrange for a technician to visit your home to complete the installation. You will also receive a new modem if you have opted for one and instructions on how to connect your devices to the network.
      The activation process after applying for a plan will depend on whether you’ve already had the NBN equipment installed at your premises and your internet provider. If your premises has the NBN equipment installed already you could be connected within 48-72 hours. If your property has yet to have the NBN equipment installed you can expect to wait up to 3-4 weeks for a technician to complete the installation. It would be nice also i you can clarify this directly with your provider.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

      Hi Natasha,

      You’ve come through to finder.com.au, not amaysim. Amaysim is a mobile broadband provider that operates on the Optus 4G network. So long as you have access to Optus 4G, you will be eligible for amaysim’s plans.

      Thanks,
      Brodie
