Moose Mobile broadband plans compared

Moose Mobile offers data-only SIM plans starting at 1.5GB and going all the way up to 70GB.

Like an increasing number of mobile telcos these days, Moose Mobile has embraced the always-online age by offering data-only mobile broadband plans alongside its regular call and data plans. Delivered over Optus' 4G Plus network, these plans are available on no-lock-in, month-to-month contracts and range in size from a light 1.5GB up to a hefty 70GB.

Moose Mobile mobile broadband plans

Like its regular mobile plans, Moose Mobile's data-only plans operate on a post-paid basis. All plans come with free delivery of the necessary SIM card which you can use in your phone, tablet, wireless dongle or any other device that supports cellular service.

Moose Mobile currently offers the following data-only plans:

  • 1.5GB Data SIM, which costs $12 a month
  • 5GB Data SIM, which costs $18 a month
  • 10GB Data SIM, which costs $32 a month
  • 15GB Data SIM, which costs $42 a month
  • 50GB Data SIM, which costs $58 a month
  • 70GB Data SIM, which costs $78 a month

If you blow through all your monthly data on any of the above plans, Moose Mobile will charge you at a rate of 1.5c/MB for any excess data you continue to use.

How do Moose Mobile's mobile broadband plans compare?

Moose Mobile's data plans fall into three categories worth comparing separately: low data plans, regular data plans and large data plans.

How do Moose Mobile's low data plans compare?

Whether you're after a backup data SIM to keep you online when your home broadband drops out or you're simply not a heavy Internet user, Moose Mobile's low-data plans are a solid choice. Its $18 5GB plan stacks up especially well, getting you far more data for your dollar than similarly priced offerings from the big names like Telstra, Optus and Vodafone.

Even against other cut-price providers, Moose Mobile holds its own. Only Jeenee's $15 plan and Spintel's $16.95 plan, both of which also operate on Optus's network, trump Moose Mobile for straight-up value.

How do Moose Mobile's regular data plans compare?

Moose Mobile continues to deliver the goods in the 10GB to 15GB range. Its plans are only slightly more expensive than those from Jeenee and Vaya while still maintaining an edge on Optus and Telstra's offerings.

If you're adamant about avoiding Optus's network, though, Vodafone presents a reasonable alternative at this tier. Its $45 14GB plan doesn't offer quite the same value on the surface, but it does include $5 per day international roaming which could be handy if you travel frequently.

How do Moose Mobile's large data plans compare?

The tables take an interesting turn at the top end of mobile broadband plans. While providers like Vaya, Jeenee and Spintel continue to lead the market at the 50GB level, Optus swoops in at the $70 price point to offer plans the smaller providers simply can't keep up with.

Here, Moose Mobile's $78 70GB plan is no match for Optus's $70 100GB plan. It's not just a pure dollars-to-data equation, either: Optus crams even more value into their plans by allowing you to stream music from Google Play Music, Spotify and iHeartRadio without it counting against your monthly cap.

Why should you consider Moose Mobile?

Moose Mobile offers some of the cheapest mobile broadband plans for data needs both big and small. From a basic 1.5GB plan suitable for reading the news on your commute to a meaty 70GB plan capable of performing double-duty as your home broadband connection, Moose Mobile gives you plenty of choice without having to pay through the nose for it.
