Is Aussie Broadband right for me?

- Product highlights: No-lock-in contracts, Telstra network coverage, large data caps available.

There are no set-up fees associated with Aussie Broadband's mobile plans. There are no standard excess usage fees, either; if you use up your monthly quota of data, your service will be suspended until the end of your current billing period. Alternatively, you can purchase data blocks à la carte at $10 per 1GB to get you by until your quota resets.
It's also worth noting that Aussie Broadband charges $15 for delivery of your SIM card, unless you order it at the same time as a modem-router bundled in with a broadband plan from Aussie Broadband.
How does Aussie Broadband compare?
- Plenty of data caps to choose from
- Telstra network provides increased coverage to rural and remote areas
- Pricing is on the premium side compared to the competition
Aussie Broadband doesn't exactly make the strongest case for its mobile plans. While these are far from the most expensive on the market, they don't offer the same value offered by many competing providers.
That said, Aussie Broadband does have the advantage of being one of only a few Australian telcos to operate on Telstra's 3G and 4G network. It's still not the cheapest Telstra MVNO around, but it's worth considering if you're deadset on a Telstra-powered mobile plan.
