Aussie Broadband mobile review: Our verdict

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.

Aussie Broadband's mobile plans could be right for you if:

  • You prefer to bundle your mobile and internet services with 1 provider.
  • You want reliable local customer support.
  • If you want a no lock-in contract.
  • You want international call credit (available on its $40 plan and above).

Just keep in mind that Aussie Broadband:

  • Has pay-as-you-go international roaming, which can be expensive. You'd be better off getting a local or travel SIM if you're going on a trip.

Value for money

Aussie Broadband's 4G mobile plans come with varying data limits (between 3GB and 220GB). Its plans are a bit lacklustre as there are other providers offering similar data limits and features for cheaper. This is also true for other smaller providers that run on the Optus network.
Aussie Broadband's 5G mobile plans offer plenty of data, allowing you to make the most of your 5G download speeds.
  • Good to know: You pay an average of $0.90 per 1GB of data across Aussie's 5G plans, which holds up well against the $1 for 1GB benchmark.

Things to watch out for:

  • Aussie Broadband's 5G plans operate on the Optus 5G network, so make sure you're within its coverage area to gain access to it. You'll also need a 5G-capable phone in order to access the 5G network.

coverage icon

Coverage

Aussie Broadband uses the Optus 4G/5G network, which is the second largest network in Australia.

  • You'll get identical coverage to a plan from Optus, with full access to the Optus 3G/4G network covering 98.5% of Australians.
  • If you buy a 5G plan, you'll also be able to use the Optus 5G network so long as you have a compatible device and live in a covered area.
  • Metro customers should have no problem with coverage, but you might notice a drop in rural or regional areas compared to Telstra's network (which is larger).

Customer service

If you're looking to sign up to Aussie Broadband's mobile plans or simply want to ask a question, it has loads of contact options. You can:

  • Ring up its Australia-based customer support team between 8am AEST and midnight AEST any day of the week.
  • Ask a question via its Twitter or Facebook pages for a quick response.
  • Submit an email enquiry via the form on Aussie's website.
  • Raise a support ticket via the app if you've already signed up. You can also manage your account, edit payment details, see data usage and run extra troubleshooting via the app.
  • Ask a question on Aussie Broadband's live chat feature. You can manage this via Aussie Broadband's website.
  • Good to know: Aussie Broadband's support team is based in Victoria.

Bonus features

Aussie Broadband's extra features are all surrounding its data inclusions.

📳 Data sharing

Data is automatically shared between 4G mobile plans that are on the same account. This can be convenient for billing or balancing out your usage.

🌐 Internet bundling

Aussie Broadband's 4G mobile plans come with an extra 1–20GB of bonus data when you also have an Aussie internet plan on the same account.

If you're already an Aussie Broadband customer, this will significantly boost the value of its mobile plans since you'll get more data for the same price.

➕ Data add-ons

If you run out of data and need a little to tide you over to the next recharge, you can purchase extra in blocks that expire at the end of the month:

  • 1GB for $10
  • 5GB for $15
  • 20GB for $20

You can access this directly from Aussie Broadband's app.

Which rivals are giving Aussie a run for its money?

Aussie Broadband has some great plans, especially its 5G options, but here are some other providers that measure up well:

For cheaper plans:
moose mobile logo
Moose Mobile is well-known for its affordable set of mobile plans, with ongoing low prices and frequent, long-lasting sign-up deals to drive costs down.

For more affordable 5G:

spintel
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.

For better coverage:
aldimobile logoALDImobile not only has a spiffy set of low-priced mobile plans, it uses the Telstra wholesale network which could work better in rural and regional areas.

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.
