Who is amaysim?

amaysim launched in 2010 as an Australian MVNO, a telco provider that uses the Optus 3G/4G wholesale network to connect its users. Since launch, amaysim has expanded from a single mobile phone plan to a major communications company offering not just mobile plans, but also a range of NBN plans, mobile phones and even energy.

Regardless of what service amaysim is offering, the company's core promise is competitive plans with simple inclusions and no lock-in contracts.

When it comes to broadband, amaysim has both NBN and data-only mobile broadband plans:

amaysim NBN plans

amaysim acquired NBN provider AusBBS back in July 2016, which helped the company build out the necessary components to launch its own NBN plans back in May 2017.

As with its mobile plans, amaysim's NBN plans are notable for their simplicity. Unlimited data inclusions are standard, with three different speed options for customers to choose from. There are no lock-in contracts either, making it easy to always be on the hunt for a better broadband deal.

Amaysim NBN Basic Unlimited 12/1 Mbps 1 MonthBasic (12/1Mbps NBN tier 1)$60/month
Amaysim NBN Standard Plus Unlimited 50/20 Mbps 1 MonthStandard (25/5Mbps NBN tier 2)$70/month
Amaysim NBN Premium Unlimited 100/40 Mbps 1 MonthPremium (100/40Mbps NBN tier 4)$90/month

NBN customers joining amaysim are given the option to either buy a preconfigured modem from amaysim for $109, or bring their own NBN-compatible modem.

amaysim mobile broadband plans

Because amaysim uses the Optus 4G network for its mobile offerings, customers can expect the same coverage and download speeds offered by Optus, with independent pricing and plan structures, and customer service available 16-hours a day.

All of amaysim's mobile broadband plans are month-to-month, so there are no lock-in contracts, with varying data inclusion levels at a variety of price points to suit different needs.

Amaysim 4G Mobile Broadband 50GB 28 Days50GB$60/28 days
Amaysim 4G Mobile Broadband 100GB 28 Days70GB$70/28 days

All of amaysim's mobile broadband plans are SIM-only, so you need to bring your own device for the SIM card, whether that's a portable hotspot device or a tablet with a SIM card slot for mobile connectivity.

For all amaysim mobile broadband plans, data is charged in 1KB increments, while additional data packs can be purchased for $10/GB.

It's also important to call out that amaysim's mobile broadband plans run to a 28-day cycle rather than a full month, which means that you end up having to pay your bill a little more frequently than providers who charge by the month.

How does amaysim compare?

amaysim has built a reputation as a simple, affordable alternative to the major telcos, so it's no surprise that the provider is among the cheapest options on the market.

amaysim Basic NBN plans compared

Thanks to its current discount offer, amaysim's Basic speed unlimited plan can be had for $60/month. It's worth mentioning that there's no home phone line rental included in that price though, as amaysim doesn't offer voice calling on its NBN plans.

While it is technically possible to have a home line and an NBN service delivered by two different companies, actually doing so adds extra complexity to your monthly accounting, so it may be worth looking elsewhere if a home phone line is essential.

Another key feature amaysim offers is no setup fee for its NBN plans, so while the other plans below actually charge a connection fee, amaysim does make connecting to the NBN more affordable.

We've pulled together four Basic (12Mbps) unlimited NBN plans with no lock in contract to compare amaysim's offering below:

Amaysim NBN Basic Unlimited 12/1 Mbps 1 MonthBasic (12/1Mbps NBN tier 1)$60/month
Spintel NBN Entry Bundle 12/1 Mbps Unlimited 1 MonthBasic (12/1Mbps NBN tier 1)$54.95/month
Exetel NBN Basic Unlimited 12/1 Mbps 1 MonthBasic (12/1Mbps NBN tier 1)$54.99/month
Hello Broadband NBN Unlimited Entertainer 50/20 Mbps 1 MonthBasic (12/1Mbps NBN tier 1)$74.95/month

amaysim Standard NBN plans compared

Jumping up to the 25Mbps speed tier, and amaysim continues to be competitive from a price perspective. The lack of home phone inclusions and no setup fees are also relevant here, as you can save in the up front cost, but won't have the same ability to make calls from an amaysim NBN connection.

We've pulled together four Standard (25Mbps) unlimited NBN plans with no lock in contract to compare amaysim's offering below:

Amaysim NBN Standard Plus Unlimited 50/20 Mbps 1 MonthStandard (25/5Mbps NBN tier 2)$70/month
Hello Broadband NBN Unlimited Starter 12/1 Mbps 1 MonthStandard (25/5Mbps NBN tier 2)$49.95/month
Spintel NBN Standard Plus Bundle 50/20 Mbps Unlimited 1 MonthStandard (25/5Mbps NBN tier 2)$74.95/month
Standard (25/5Mbps NBN tier 2)/month

amaysim Premium NBN plans compared

Like many NBN providers, amaysim doesn't offer a plan at the 50Mbps price tier, instead jumping right up to the premium, 100Mbps level. In this space, pricing is much more competitive, with the likes of MyRepublic and MyNetFone offering similar pricing at the top tier. The lack of setup connection fees still works in amaysim's favour though.

We've pulled together four Premium (100Mbps) unlimited NBN plans with no lock in contract to compare amaysim's offering below:

Premium (100/40Mbps NBN tier 4)/month
MyNetFone NBN Unlimited 100/40 Mbps 1 MonthPremium (100/40Mbps NBN tier 4)$89.99/month
Exetel NBN Premium Unlimited 100/40 Mbps 1 MonthPremium (100/40Mbps NBN tier 4)$89.99/month
Amaysim NBN Premium Unlimited 100/40 Mbps 1 MonthPremium (100/40Mbps NBN tier 4)$90/month

Why should you consider amaysim for your broadband?

amaysim built its brand on the simplicity of its plans, with no lock-in contract and affordable pricing. 2017 has been a big year of expansion for the company, launching both NBN plans and energy offerings, but remaining committed to the simplicity of its plans.

While amaysim may not always be the cheapest offering when it comes to broadband, 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.

    How long do we have to wait for unlimited on Satellite nbn?

      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.
