- Comprehensive app for mobile plan management
- Access to Optus's 5G network is only available on its $45 a month plan and up
Despite being well-loved for its NBN plans, Aussie Broadband's mobile plans come up a little short in comparison. Its 4G range of plans aren't too impressive, costing more than other providers in the market for similar data allowances. Although, 3 of its 8 plans beat the benchmark of $1 per GB and its self described "Max Value" plan offers you 40GB for $40 which is equals this benchmark.
If you're looking for big data (up to 220GB), Aussie does stack up better in this scenario with much more competitive prices. However, again you're still likely to find cheaper alternatives.
Its 5G plans are also pricey and you only have 3 to choose from meaning it won't work for your wallet if you don't need big data.

For more affordable 5G:
While it has a smaller range than Aussie, SpinTel's 5G plans are a little cheaper, saving you around $10 a month for the same data limits and Optus 5G speeds too.

What if I want to keep my current phone number?
All you need to do is indicate that you want to keep your number during the sign-up process. Aussie will usually complete the transfer in 15 minutes to 1 hour, but it could take up to 48 hours.
If your current number is under someone else's name (a parent or a partner), it might involve some more steps. Check our guide on how to transfer ownership of your mobile number.
