How much does amaysim cost?

amaysim offers a range of mobile broadband plans with varying levels of included data. Prices start at $9.90 a month for 1GB of data, with a 2.5GB option and a 4GB option also on offer. There's a 10GB plan as well with a 365 day expiry term, which costs $99.90.

Also worth noting is that with the exception of the 10GB plan the amaysim plans auto renew after 30 days, rather than 28 days.


What additional services are included?

What voice options are provided?

Being a data only plan, there's no voice call component, though there is a selection of data-rich amaysim phone plans available as well.

What happens if I exceed my monthly download limit?

amaysim charges excess data at 7.2c/MB. That could become costly in the long run, but fortunately the company also allows users to renew their data packs, or upgrade to a larger plan should the month's allotted data not be sufficient. However, you can only do that once you've already used 85% of your month's allowance, which doesn't give a large window of data consumption to upgrade. amaysim will notify you when you have used 50%, 85%, and 100% of your data allowance, but keep in mind that it can take up to 48 hours for the notification messages to be sent out.


Pros and cons

Pros

  • No-contract option. amaysim lives and breathes by the no lock-in contract mantra, so it's easy to sign up or switch.
  • 30 day expiry. Plans automatically renew every 30 days, so you get longer to use the data you pay for.
  • Regular usage updates. amaysim will update you on your data consumption when you've used 50%, 85% and 100% of your data.

Cons

  • Excess data charges. Rather than buy an excess data pack, you pay per MB.
  • Variable speeds . Being a mobile broadband plan, speeds will depend on your device, your location and network congestion.

      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
